REINSTATEMENT OF RUMBLE AFRICA TOURNAMENT SCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE
AT ORIENT THEATRE, EAST LONDON ON SUNDAY, 9 DECEMBER 2018
Following the cancellation notice which was issued by Boxing South Africa on Sunday, 2 December 2018, this
serves to provide the latest update on this matter.
Subsequent to the cancellation notice, Rumble Africa Promotions complied with all outstanding requirements
including the remainder of the purse money. Boxing South Africa noted with great concern the fact that this only
happened outside the approved timelines and therefore at a time when the tournament had already been cancelled.
Consequence management in this regard will ensue!
Rumble Africa further submitted a request for Boxing South Africa to kindly review cancellation of the tournament
and reinstate its approval. Compelling and humanitarian reasons were advanced and all these had to be weighed
carefully, within the context of the boxing regulations as well as the overarching mandate of Boxing South Africa
which is the development and promotion of boxing.
Having considered all that, Boxing South Africa saw it appropriate to reinstate the sanctioning of Rumble Africa
tournament and to allow this tournament to proceed on Sunday, 9 December 2018 at Orient Theatre, East London
as initially scheduled. This decision was not taken lightly!
The key determinant in this regard was assurance that the reinstatement won’t adversely impact on the tournament
itself nor on any participating parties, more especially the boxing loving community, the sponsors, the broadcaster,
BSA personnel and the boxers.
This remains the only cancelled tournament which has been reviewed and reinstated. The approved tournaments
that will be taking place this weekend are therefore:
