The England Boxing National Amateur Championships (NACs) has been creating legends since 1881 – and spectators can secure a 20% discount to see the latest set of belt winners crowned with an early bird offer.
Tickets are now on sale online for English amateur boxing’s showpiece occasion, England Boxing National Amateur Championships 2020 Finals Day, being held at Manchester Central on Saturday 25th April (2pm start, 1pm doors).
Under the competition’s former names of the ABAs and Elites, the list of former winners is a who’s who of English boxing.
Household names such as Henry Cooper, Frank Bruno (pictured above, winning in 1980), Nigel Benn, Ricky Hatton, Carl Froch, Tony Bellew, Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, Nicola Adams, Savannah Marshall and Stacey Copeland are just a few of the former champions to subsequently rise to fame.
Among those to triumph last year were Delicious Orie, who has moved onto the GB Boxing programme, and Demie-Jade Resztan, who claimed bronze medal at the 2019 Women’s World Boxing Championships in October.
Another stellar bout list is sure to be in place come Finals Day’s one-ring, under-the-lights set-up, with a host of contenders determined to prove beyond doubt they are the best in the country in front of the BBC television cameras.
So whether you want to cheer on a boxer or club you have a connection with – or simply want to check out potential stars of the future – then a great day out is ensured.
