Ahead of the maiden GOtv Boxing NextGen Search, holding between 17 and 18 February, young boxers have been visiting the Secretariat of the Nigerian Boxing Board of Control (NBB of C) to obtain forms for registration.
GOtv Boxing NextGen Search, which is being organised under the auspices of the NBB of C and in partnership with the Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame, is being held to discover a new crop of professional boxing talents and give those who have already turned pro an opportunity in the boxing shop window.
According to the organisers, registration is free and intending participants can pick up their forms at the NBB of Secretariat at the National Stadium, Lagos.
The event will hold over the two days at the Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame Gym, Olatilewa Street, off Lawanson Road, Surulere, Lagos.
According to the organisers, registered boxers will take part in sparring sessions during which they will be evaluated by celebrated coaches, who will select the best performing boxers.
Selected boxers will be eligible to attend a sports/medical seminar at the Old Skool Restaurant, National Stadium on 19 February, where they will enjoy the benefits of free medical examination and payment for their boxing licences by GOtv, sponsors of the event.
