goboxing is a unique concept in South Africa and one which will create a single unified boxing community between amateur, professional and recreational environments, something which has not happened before. It effectively teaches boxing gyms to run more profitably and better support themselves by giving them business skills they wouldn’t have had before, fostering skills development and employment creation.
goboxing uses a website, South Africa’s first ‘official’ online boxing portal for Amateur, Professional and White Collar gyms, Trainers, Managers & Promoters. Each member is given their own free web-page, web address and e-mail as a platform to expose and market themselves ‘intelligently’ to clients in their area. This coupled with a ‘distance learning’ program (info accessible through the website) as well as a series of bi-annual conferences around the country make goboxing the Facebook of South African boxing info. In addition, the first 50 underprivileged gyms to join the program get R2500 worth of free boxing equipment to uplift their gyms.
Created by Webmail (one of South Africa’s foremost online specialists), the site is guaranteed to have the online impact it needs. And the impact is simple- to make gyms more popular, more profitable and better known, a single unified boxing community.
