WALES SET FOR CANADA CLASH

Team Canada’s and Team Wales’ elite men’s and women’s national boxing teams are in Regina for a rigorous, seven day training camp in preparation for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games ahead of the 22nd annual Ken Goff Memorial Boxing Classic.

Team Canada will compete against Team Wales on Friday, May 23 at the Credit Union EventPlex, and in the Mayor’s Cup, Sunday, May 25, at Banner Hall at Evraz Place.

“Our team is excited to be in Regina taking part in a training camp and dual match as we prepare for the Commonwealth Games,” said Mandy Bujold. “This week’s events will be a great test for our team as Wales has a strong team and most of their team will also compete at the Commonwealth Games this summer. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Wales throughout the rest of the training camp leading into the bouts on Friday and Sunday.”

The boxers have been using the Regina Boxing Club (RBC) as a training centre in preparation for their bouts, along with access to Black and Blue Boxing Club and Lonsdale Boxing Club in Regina. The RBC has been a centre of excellence in amateur boxing, developing athletes into competitors, champions, and good citizens since 1949.
