Amateur boxing is alive and well in Toronto. World Boxing Wars host licensed boxing events around the city that anyone can attend. The latest was this past Saturday at the Royal Canadian Legion in Etobicoke with 10 bouts on the card, plus one exhibition match.
If you've ever watched a professional boxing match and thought "This is kinda boring, why aren't they doing anything?" you won't see that here. Fights are short: boxers only have three to five rounds to get a win. Plus, amateurs don't have the calculated precision of the pros, resulting in exciting fights with lots of action and heart.
