Memo: Wade Groth Status Upgrade


Re: Upgrade Of Interim Champion To Fully Fledged Champion

Purpose: The purpose of this memo is to pronounce on Mr. Wade Groth’s interim champion status upgrade.

Background: On the 19th October 2018 BSA received communications from Mr. Barend Van Rooyen’s management informing BSA that Mr. Van Rooyen wishes to vacate the Middleweight title with immediate effect.

BSA accepts this decision and has extended its appreciation to Mr. Van Rooyen on his conduct during the many months of his trial and further wishes him well in his future plans. BSA will offer its full support in line with the Act and Regulations to Mr. Van Rooyen should he wish to continue with his boxing career in future.

In line with BSA policy we are therefore pleased to announce that Mr. Wade Groth is now the reigning Middleweight Champion with immediate effect. Groth was conferred the interim Middleweight Championship on 10 August 2018 when he won against Wynard Mulder at the tournament hosted by Golden Gloves.

The next BSA ratings will be updated to reflect these developments and BSA will also issue a formal communication confirming its policy on interim championship.
