That’s right. We’re now officially affiliated with England Boxing as an amateur boxing club, meaning our members can access exciting competitions and step up their boxing game. We’re pleased to finally announce this news, and we can’t wait to see our boxers thrive.
In this blog, we’re exploring the details of this affiliation and providing some helpful information about England Boxing. Let’s dive in!
What Does the England Boxing Affiliation Mean?
So, now we’re affiliated with England Boxing as an amateur boxing club. But what does this mean for our members?
BSBC boxers will now be eligible to compete in regional and national competitions and have a shot at winning impressive new titles. Our boxers will also have the chance to work towards becoming a boxer on a pro or Olympic level, thanks to the extra support and assistance from England Boxing.

Moving From Recreational to Amateur Boxing
Moving up from recreational boxing can seem like a challenging journey, but it’s easier than you’d expect with a professional club (like us!) and support from England Boxing.
Recreational boxers tend to focus more on learning basic techniques, keeping fit, and enjoying the sport as a hobby. Amateur boxers practise on a higher level, stick to a structured training schedule, and compete in regulated competitions.
Who Can Start Amateur Boxing?
Amateur boxing is open to fighters from age 10 up to age 40! Anyone can jump into the ring and try their hand at this exciting sport.
What Are the Benefits of Amateur Boxing?
Amateur boxing is extremely beneficial for all boxers — including the younger generation. Here’s how amateur boxing can positively impact your life inside and outside the ring:
- Drives you to reach your potential in the sport and in life
- Allows you to meet new friends with like-minded interests
- Connects you to a motivated community of all ages and abilities
- Helps to build strong bonds through shared training and competition experiences
- Allows you to de-stress from modern life!
