Cabbagetown Boxing Club Brings Home Championship Belts

boxing-print-This past July, the Cabbagetown Boxing Club had the privilege and honor of sending a team down to Independence Missouri for the 17th Annual Ringside Championships. With over 1500 boxers competing from countries all over the world, the tournament provided some valuable experience for the boxers.
Lead by Coach John Kalbhenn, the Cabbagetown boxers competing were Xavier Doiron, Jackson Cook, Chris Cook, Jim Bland and Heather Hopkins. Xavier and Jackson fought some tough opponents in the preliminary and quarter final matches, but did not get the decision in their favour. At only 11 years old, they have gained some very good experience and already putting what they’ve learned to good use. Heavyweight, Chris Cook lost in the semi-final against a tough opponent in his Masters Division.
Both Heather Hopkins and Jim Bland received a bye in the draws in their Masters Weight divisions, fighting in the finals on the last day of the tournament. Jim was in tough with a strong opponent, but clearly out-boxed him and came away with the win.  With a high work rate and perseverance, Heather dominated her match from the first bell to the last, intent on the win.
Cabbagetown Boxing Club looks forward to sending more of its boxers to the Ringside Tournament and bringing home more Championship belts.
You can check out the Cabbagetown talent live and in action when amateur boxing returns to the Cabbagetown Festival on September 9th at 2pm. Tickets are $20.00 with all proceeds going to the Cabbagetown Boxing Club.
