Do you remember the annual live amateur boxing show during the Cabbagetown Street Festival?
For the first time since 2010, the bell will ring, restarting one of the finest traditions in Cabbagetown, live boxing.  After recent renovations to the building, an action-packed 7-bout boxing card has been sanctioned and scheduled for Sunday December 4th, with the first bout staring at 2:30pm.
Price of admission is $20.00 and children under 12 are $10.00. General seating is limited, first come first served.  Doors open at 2pm.
Cabbagetown Boxing is located at 2 Lancaster Ave, tucked neatly behind the Beer Store on Parliament, on the second floor above the Cabbagetown Youth Centre. Founded in 1972, the CYC boxing program has produced such notables as Canadian Boxing Champions, Shawn O’Sullivan and John Kalbhenn. To this day, boxing forms one component of a richer, more encompassing mix of social and recreational programs.  With after-school boxing programs, a competitive boxers program and recreational classes, Cabbagetown Boxing has something for everyone.
