South African Boxing Awards 2016
In May this year 2016, we announced that the South African boxing awards is back on the cards after an absence of seven years from the boxing scene. By and large, this major announcement was a direct response to a deep seated cry of anguish from all boxing stakeholders and enthusiasts bemoaning the absence of this celebrated event from the boxing calendar.
The significance of these Awards can never be overstated. In a society where negative role models often attempt to reign supreme, boxingís galaxy of excellence can simply not afford to play second fiddle. In and outside the ring, our sport of boxing has produced some of Mzansiís finest sport genius, history rewriters, stalwarts and legends! Through these awards we seek to recognize, reward and profile their accomplishment. Through their journey, we seek to inspire the next generation.
An adjudication panel consisting of knowledgeable, experienced, and committed men and women of good standing has been appointed to drive this process. This includes considering all nominations, shortlisting nominees per category and finally coming up with winners in each category. A firm of independent auditors has also been appointed to oversee compliance to the rulebook approved by the Board and ensure integrity of the entire process.
From 1 October till 2 November 2016 we are inviting our boxing licensees, enthusiasts and general public to nominate candidates of their choice. There are a total eighteen categories and criteria for eligibility of candidates into each category. All these are explained in a rulebook which further outlines nomination process to be accessed here or through our provincial managers in the respective provinces.
Our call to action is for the boxing community to rise up in numbers, seize the opportunity and nominate their preferred candidates. As a rule, no candidate can nominate him or herself. So for names of our heroes and heroines to be considered by the adjudication panel, we need to take that first step and nominate them.
