He told Sedibeng Ster Sport that he was proud of the job well done by the Sedibeng Boxing Association for hosting such a tournament. The tournament saw boxers from Gauteng Province compete against each other for the past two weekends. Madikizela said the standard was high with boxers showcasing their God-giving talent for the past two weekends. This tournament started on 18 August and came to an end on Sunday with the finals.

“We want to thank everyone for their support and I must say we had a great tournament and thanks for their support. I saw great talent and I have no doubt that most of those boxers’ future looks great.
