Ghana Amateur Boxing Association Information Update

The Ghana Amateur Boxing Association wishes to update the public on its programmes and activities initiated since January 2010 following the seeming silence of news on Amateur Boxing in the country and as envisioned by some boxing enthusiasts and other  stakeholders.

 GABA hopes this would keep its stakeholders reliably informed on what the Secretariat has been doing as far as Amateur Boxing is concerned.
 

 


INFORMATION UPDATES

GHANA–RUSSIA AMATEUR BOXING TOURNAMENT

The above international event which was arranged by GABA in January 2010 and scheduled for Accra in the first quarter of the year has been postponed due to some travel difficulties being encountered by the Russian team. A new date will be communicated in due course. GABA’s funds request on the tournament has gone through the Sports Council and the Ministry of Youth and Sports for approval.

The Association has for the first time in its history successfully put in a request for the above grant from the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) for grassroot development of the sport with emphasis on regional training camps in all the 10 regions of Ghana, effective July 2010.


 
CONDITIONS

  • Ghana would be required to contribute 15% of the grant for the final project when finally approved.
  • GABA to have regional Individual Championships to raise teams for the AIBA regional training camps.

Azumah Nelson, to form teams ‘A’ and ‘B’ for daily and special weekend training at the D. G. Hathiramani Sports Hall of the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium and at the Army Volunteer Training Centre, near Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum in Accra.
