Travellers, who will be waiting for transport to various destinations at Park Station next Sunday, could miss their trains and buses due to excitement from a boxing tournament that will take place there on that evening.

A number of boxing prospects will be engaged in fights to determine their future in the fight game.

Action is scheduled to begin at 7pm. Promoter Pat Molefe, who markets his Rainbow Boxing Promotions brand through the sport, has compiled seven bouts in as many weight divisions.

This tournament, which pits fighters from Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal against each other, is sanctioned by Boxing SA.

It comprises three four rounders and three six-round fights. Topping it is a 12 rounder between Amon Baloyi and Patrick Malinga.

Baloyi's SA lightweight belt will be on the line.

The champion's skills are honed in Gauteng by Colin Nathan while the challenger from Katlehong is under the tutelage of his father Jabulani Malinga.

Baloyi will bid for a first defence since annexing the belt from Irvin Buhlalu in May. The least said about what to expect from their fight the better.

In other bouts, Page Tshesane meets Kenneth Hlaisa, Luyanda Jako faces Peter Mngadi, Siyabulela Ziqula fights Edward Mpofu, Boitshepo Mandawe faces off against Tebogo Malose, Dumisani Buhlalu fights Jeremia Baloyi and Luvuyo Ngcobo meets Sipho Nkadimeng.

Molefe, the only boxing promoter who stages professional fights at the famous Park Station where fans gain free entrance, assured travellers leaving late that night that they will have something to talk about on their journey home.

The tournament will be broadcast live on SuperSport.
