The first tournament of Women in Boxing 2016 took place in Port Elizabeth on 24 February 2017. The tournament host Aphile Boxing Promotions hosted a ten rounds bout with Nozipho Bell vs. Sthandiwe Ngcobo as the main bout. The main supporting bout was another star-studded bout between Noni Tenge and Esther Mashiye.

In 2016 BSA issued out an invitation to female promoters to bid for financial assistance to host female tournaments focusing mainly on national title fights, provincial title fights as well as female boxers at development level. The program was themed along the message of sixteen days of activism against violence on women and children. "Count me in in: Together moving women boxing forward!"

These tournaments not only seek to contribute towards development of female boxing in our country but also to advance boxing's role towards nation building, social cohesion and civic consciousness.

The successful Promoters were selected and they are:

  1. Aphile Boxing Promotions
  2. Zbashy Promotions & Events
  3. Starline Boxing Promotions
  4. Showtime Promotions
