Next Friday, July 22, in Posadas, the Polideportivo Provincial Finito Gehrmann will host a new boxing evening. Different exhibition and amateur fights will be held there so that people can enjoy a new day of missionary boxing.

Starting at 8:00 p.m. there will be eight fights with different athletes from Posadas who will arrive from the province of Tierra del Fuego. Through the motto “Uniting the country” the event will seek to promote missionary boxing and put it back on the front page.

“We have brought together most of the gyms in our city, most of them have many boys who are training as boxers,” described Ricardo Biondi, director of Community and Federated Sports of the Municipality of Posadas.

He also stressed the importance of being able to hold this type of event for young boxers. “Getting into the ring is one of the necessary conditions to be able to be professional, so we see the need to carry out these events,” he stressed.

“It gives us great joy to carry it out and we invite the entire community to come and participate. Admission will be $200 and licensed boxers get in free,” added Biondi.

For his part, Bruno Fretes, president of the Missionary Boxing Association said: “The boys have the opportunity to be avant-garde in an event of this type where the extremes of the country come together, where in the 102 federated boxing in the country never He did, the boys take away that they are writing the boxing history of our country ».

From the Association they resume the reins of the activities after a long period of not carrying out activities due to the pandemic. “Our job is to manage these types of events, apart from what is officially on the annual boxing calendar. The association makes it possible that from knowing each other between the provinces, we can hold important and interprovincial events, not with neighboring provinces but with the others”, explained Fretes.

The boys when they see the biggest ones are fighting in Posadas and then they participate in events in other provinces, the boy gets motivated, the problem is when there are no figures and motivation is lost. With this type of event we help parents, and they also see that this is not grabbing pineapples in the street, they see that it is a healthy sport»
