GB Boxing Championships to be shown live on the BBC
The 2019 GB Boxing Championships will be streamed live on BBC Channels from 19:25 on Thursday 5 December 2019.
The event will feature 10 bouts (3 female and 7 male) between some of the best up-and-coming young boxers in Great Britain.
Previous GB Boxing champions include Anthony Joshua, Nicola Adams, Luke Campbell and Joe Joyce.
This year’s event will provide an opportunity for sports fans to get an early look at boxers that aim to wear the Team GB vest at a future Olympic Games.
It will be shown live from 19:25 with commentary by Ronald McIntosh and 2012 Olympian, Natasha Jonas, on the BBC i-player and BBC Sport website at https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/boxing/50608263.
The GB Championships will see some current members of Great Britain’s Olympic squad compete against boxers representing England, Scotland and Wales in a ‘Battle of Britain’ whereby any home nation boxer who defeats a member of the GB Boxing squad will secure the opportunity of an assessment to join the Olympic programme as a funded athlete.
The home nation boxers are all either winners of the 2019 Elite Three Nations competition (which is contested by the winners of the 2019 National Championships in England, Scotland and Wales) or have been selected by their national governing body (NGB).
