Boxing in South Africa

50Sports_facebook_boxingThe Sisonke Boxing Club in East London, South Africa, has been keeping kids off the couch, off the street and out of trouble for 20 years through the discipline, physical conditioning and self confidence that their boxing programmes can provide, so the 50 sports team heading to the Mdantsane township to join in the action and give boxing a go ourselves as one of our great ways to help get the world off the couch.

South African extreme athlete and 50sports Adventure mentor Peter Van Kets, his lovely and super fit wife Kim and her brother and Box4Life founder Russell Sparg will be in our corner throughout the week to tend to our bruises and keep our motivation at an all time high.

The week round s off on South Africa’s national holiday with a boxing tournament featuring many of the sport’s local and international legends. Should be a fantastic end to an amazing week at the back end of an incredible 50 week global journey to get the world off the couch, one sport at a time.
