“Treat a Human Being as they are and they will remain as they are… Treat them as they can and should be and they will become as they can and should be.”
“We aim to give ‘Amateur Boxing’ that much needed “shot of adrenaline” and in the process save lives, educate and prepare our youth for a successful future.
The Inaugural Eddie Melo Legacy Organization’s Invitational Amateur Boxing Show-2018 would be the commencement of a long-term boxing-mentorship program where we utilize our resources to enhance amateur boxers’ aspirations in the sport with an acute attention to their social development, education, and future.
Every single boxer registered with us will have the opportunity of meeting and engaging with former amateur and professional boxers, champs and contenders who will mentor them.
The “show” will consist of 10 weight classes (male) contested rather than the multitude of other divisions and 5 weight classes (female), with a possibility for an additional class.
Weight divisions would either be in line with the professional system (lbs) or the amateur system (kgs). Boxers will be matched according to experience and age and, will be chosen via a draw which will be broadcast LIVE on the Eddie Melo Legacy Organization’s Invitational Amateur Boxing Championships Official Facebook Page.
Registration for this Open Class/Elite competition will commence on June 15, 2018, and end July 25, 2018, and be under the following criteria:
Those boxers registered and not matched (because of limited bouts to be hosted) will participate in the next Eddie Melo Legacy Organization’s Invitational Amateur Boxing Show “Box-Off” (TBA).
The Amateur Boxing Show will take place at the Junction Brewery on Friday, August 10, 2018, in Toronto, Canada; weigh-ins at 4:30 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm, with the first bout at 7 pm.
