NOVEMBER 1, 2022 | TORONTO, ON.Boxing Ontario is set to host their Provincial Championships, also known as the Golden Gloves Tournament, from November 3-6, 2022 at Red Owl Boxing in Brampton.

This four-day tournament will witness some of the top boxing talent from across the province compete for the provincial titles. For many of the athletes, Provincial Championships will be a first step on their journeys to compete for Ontario and Canada on the world stage.

The Provincial Championships is an advancing tournament which will determine the 2023 Boxing Ontario team as well as provide athletes with the opportunity to compete at the 2023 Canadian Championships (date to be determined by Boxing Canada).

“With the Paris 2024 Olympic qualifiers on the horizon, Ontario is prepared to showcase our local talent! While the province reopened for competition just over 6 months ago, we are inspired by the number of athletes who remained prepared and waiting for their opportunity to hit the national and international stage,” says the Chair of Boxing Ontario’s Officials Commission, Jennifer Huggins.

For the Boxing Ontario Youth and Junior C athletes who are competing for a position on the 2023 Canada Games team, Provincial Championships is a qualifying tournament in the rigorous selection process.
