Bringing Boxing To The People
Mahikeng – BRD Sport Management and Mahikeng Local Municipality in association with the Norman “Pangaman” Sekgapane Foundation will be staging a professional boxing tournament otherwise known Norman “Pangaman” Sekgapane Boxing Extravaganza (Part One) at Mahikeng Civic Centre on the 17th October 2015.
The partnership is premised on the founding document that envisaged a legacy project based on the success over the last fifteen (15) years of the Annual “Pangaman” Sekgapane Summer Games. The “Pangaman” Boxing Extravaganza is a collaboration of BRD Sport Management, the Department of Education and Sport Development and Mahikeng Local Municipality which provided technical support in the form of funding and participation. In acknowledging and recognizing the legendary iconic achievements and contribution of Norman “Pangaman” Sekgapane to the development of boxing, the foundation has programmes to carry forward the envisaged legacy project. The resuscitation and revival of boxing as a sport in Bokone Bophirima will contribute towards building careers for our youth and create future World Champions.
The upcoming boxing tournament will feature:
- one South African Junior Light Weight Title Fight,
- one International fight – South African Female Bantam Weight Champion, and
- Seven (7) Explosive Under-cards Fights with three (3) boxers from Botswana and one (1) female boxer from Uganda.
Furthermore, in keeping with the programmes of the development model of Boxing South Africa (BSA) and the Provincial Government of Bokone Bophirima, seven (7) out of eighteen (18) boxers participating in the tournament are from this province. These local boxers will certainly be beneficiaries of this noble and development initiative by BRD Sport Management and Mahikeng Local Municipality. The boxing tournament is in line with the strategic programme aimed at rebranding, repositioning and renewing the image of Mahikeng as a capital city of Bokone Bophirima.
