Get ready, West Shore! From April 23- 27, Westin Bear Mountain Resort will be hosting the 2019 Super Channel Championships in their newly-constructed tennis courts. There will be two rings under a dome in 21,000 sq. feet of space. It’s an event for Canada’s top open boxers from the ages of 15 to 39 competing for a place on Canada’s National Team.
The last time Boxing B.C. hosted this competition in BC was in Richmond in 2009. So, momentum is high.
I spoke with Colleen Bourassa, Executive Director of Boxing BC to get a perspective on amateur boxing and how events like the Super Channel Championships support young BC boxers coming up in the ranks.
