Amateur boxing fans and competitors in NC and surrounding areas: clear your calendar and make plans to spend Saturday night, September 26th in Clayton, North Carolina at the fights.
If you are competing: weigh-ins and physicals are 12-2pm at NBS Gym (1249-C Wicker Drive, Raleigh, NC). Boxing begins at 6pm at Clayton Fitness Center (1370 Cameron Way, Clayton, NC). The contact person for this event is Coach Mandy, who can be reached at 919-607-4694.
My team from LA Boxing will be fielding a few boxers, and I remain hopeful that even if I don’t find a match for this one, I’ll make some good connections and see some exciting fights.
Clayton is a small but growing town on the southeast side of Raleigh. Raleigh is packed with fun things to see and do, and it’s two hours from the beach on one side and two hours from Charlotte on the other, so if you’re traveling to watch or compete, you have plenty of options for your Sunday afternoon.
