Boxers to take up an on road show this weekend…

The unusual step of selling a tournament by taking boxers on a road show is going to take place this weekend, this initiative is taken by promoter Jeff Ellis.

Boxers Hekkie Budler, Ryno Liebenberg, Kevin Lerena, Malcolm Klassen, Ashley Dlamini and Duran Ray are to meet up the public at Southgate Mall in Johannesburg. By this means, Ellis says that he is trying to popularize the sport which has lost support.


“With so many road shows happening, this is the first of the many that we will do,” Ellis said. We want the public to be acquainted with the boxers. With so many activities planned, the general public will meet these boxers in person. Having said that, they will be involved in quite a few activities which include pad work together with a skipping rope competition! Winners of these activities will get double tickets for Golden Gloves’ box-and-dine tournament at Emperors Palace on September 29.”

In that contest — backed by Chesa Nyama — Lerena will host Gogita Gorgiladze from Georgia for the unoccupied World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth junior heavyweight title and Klassen will meet Justin Savi from Benin in a nontitle 10-rounder in the junior lightweight class.

In the junior lightweight division, Dlamini and Sydney Maluleka will be in action, on the other hand, duran ray, son of retired heavyweight fighter Basil will make his debut not in favor of Onke Duku.

Invincible in 10 fights, Lerena, 22 will face Gorgiladze who was trodden Ilunga Makabu in four rounds for the International Boxing Federation’s youth cruiserweight title last year. Since that defeat, Gorgiladze has fought 12 times and won seven fights. With that said, he has also won 19 wins against six losses.

In the meantime Klassen – the adroit fighter from Toekomsrus on the West Rand, has not seen battle given that last year of May, when he lost to Will Tomlinson for the International Boxing Organization strap in Australia. While Klassen has 27 wins from 35 fights and Savi, the ex- WBC silver featherweight champion, has 26 victories from 28 bouts.

It is the former world champion Brian Mitchell, who will host the event this Saturday. Apart from this, the event will also be used as a send-off for Budler and Liebenberg.
