Triple tournament treat on the cards

There are no half-measures for Golden Gloves.

On June 11, Rodney Berman will announce details of three separate tournaments in a single instalment; a first for SA boxing.

The tournaments, all to take place at Emperors Palace, are scheduled to take place on June 23, August 10 and September 1.

Among the boxers expected in action are Thulani Mbenge, Thabiso Mchunu, Rowan Campbell, Wade Groth, Ryno Liebenberg, Alfonso Tissen, Lusanda Komanisi, Tommy Oosthuizen, JayJay Sonjica and Keaton Gomes.

Many of the matches are still being made, but fighters like Mbenge and Mchunu are topping the card against international opposition on the 23rd.

Tommy Oosthuizen is also in the running for a ring return, although Berman wants to keep the lid on details until the announcement.

There is also a buzz around new heavyweight prospect Keaton Gomes, who is working hard to get his pro career off to an impressive start.
