Elite Boxing Championships converge on Adelaide

Some of Australia’s elite boxers, including Commonwealth Games medalists, will converge on Adelaide this weekend for the Boxing Championships.

Some of Australia’s elite boxers will converge on Adelaide this weekend to contest the Australian Boxing Championships. 

Fighters from every State and Territory will come together at the Dom Polski Centre from Wednesday all vying for a national title. 

Boxing South Australia vice president Jason Molloy says the bouts will be unlike anything seen before in South Australia, with Commonwealth Games medalists in attendance. 

“We’ve got some of the best boxers from across the country competing and six of the best representing South Australia. 

“They include our young superstar Callum Peters who won a silver medal at the recent Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.” 

Callum Peters was a force to be reckoned with at his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham despite being narrowly beaten for middleweight (75kg) gold by Scotsman Sam Hickey. 

The 19-year-old will definitely be a draw card for boxing fans over the four days of competition. 

Joining Peters and representing South Australia are Fred Zziwa, Brenton Watts, Bradon Dunning, Matthew Arthur, Sharriff Giirre and Petar Losic. 

Fights will commence from Wednesday and will conclude on Saturday. 

More than 120 fighters from across the country will travel to Adelaide to contest the national championships, which will be a much-needed boost to the local economy. 

Currently there are more than 40 registered boxing clubs across South Australia.
