Africa Boxing Confederation outline 2023 Calendar of Events

The Secretary-General of the Africa Boxing Confederation (AFBC) Andre Basile Kalong (pictured) has released the 2023 calendar of events.

Zonal championships will open the new season in March. This competition will involve all the four zones in their respective venues, and will climax with the newly-introduced Zonal Champions tournament in December.

Cameroon’s capital city, Yaounde, will host the AFBC Elite Men and Women Championships in June.

Initially Yaounde was to host the Africa Cup last held in 2014 in East London, South Africa but Kalong explains why they’re instead hosting the Africa Elite Men and Women Championships.

“We changed because during the IBA Congress in Abu Dhabi, it was decided that boxers should gain points during their continental championships for the qualification of the next Olympic Games in 2024,” said Kalong.

“It has now been adopted during the AFBC Board of Directors zoom meeting of December 17, 2022.”

The full AFBC 2023 calendar of events:

March: All Zonal Championships

June: AFBC Elite Men and Women Championships in Yaoundé, Cameroon

September: AFBC Youth Men and Women Championships in Conakry, Guinea

December: Zonal Champions Tournament. Venue to be announced later.
