Young boxers from all over the Greater Accra region are to gather in the courtyard of the Accra Metropolitan Authoritys City Engineers in James Town for a three-day juvenile boxing tournament aimed at unearthing talent and educating participants on health, the environment and other issues affecting their lives. Some 11 trophies for different weight categories are up for grabs in the competition running from 15 to 17 March. Organised by the Will Power Boxing Gym, this is the third boxing tournament to be held at the City Engineers compound since mid-February. The choice of location is no accident: James Town, otherwise know as Bukom, is commonly considered the home of boxing in Ghana and its numerous clubs have produced some of the country's finest pugilists. The ring has been donated by acting chief executive of the National Sports Council, Charles James Aryeh, a supporter of the initiative. Earlier events attracted a large turnout of spectators and participants, including women, Ghana News Agency reports.
