GOLDEN GLOVES UPDATE REGARDING MALE WEIGHT CATEGORIES
As of today, AIBA has yet to announce any decisions to reclassify the male weight categories. Boxing Ontario has consulted with Boxing Canada and it has been agreed upon that until a formal announcement from AIBA is made the currently used weight categories will remain in effect for all sanctioned tournaments and events.
The Golden Gloves tournament is just over a week away so the presently used weight classes will stand for this event. We feel this decision is in the best interest of our athletes as they would not have sufficient time to safely adapt to new weight categories. Boxing Ontario will continue to monitor the situation and will notify the membership of any changes.
Some reminders for Golden Gloves:
In order to provide the safest and fairest competition in our Tournaments, we need to remove last minute changes that affect opportunities and schedules for Boxers and their Families.
Please be reminded of the following deadlines that will be strictly enforced.
Golden Gloves Registration Deadline: Fri: Nov 23rd at 4pm boxers must be registered on the system with correct number of bouts and weight category.
Tournament Weight Changes: In order to compete in the Tournament, you must be registered online. You may change your Weight Category online until 4pm Fri. Nov 23rd. Any weight changes after the deadline will not be accepted.
