The Golden Fist Boxing Gym will host its Amateur Boxing Card, this afternoon at the Simeon Road Youth Center,beginning at 1.00 p.m.

The effort is one of the activities aimed at reducing the tendency for our youths to be involved in violent crime through re – channeling of their energies into a sporting discipline.

The Gym is being led by Babatola Onafowokan – Rawleson Dopwell, and involves the youths in movement meditation, muscle toning and development, arm strengthening, leg development, foot work, eye and hand coordination and many more motor and psychological skills and disciplines.

The Administrators of this site thank the youths, parents and assistants of Babatola  for creating an atmosphere of hope for the youths of our community. ALL THEY NEED IS YOUR SUPPORT. COME OUT THIS AFTERNOON AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT.



  1. The event even with its late start was energy packed, I enjoyed the talent. There were particular fights that stood out for me, though I cannot recall the names of all the boxers — there was Kevin from MARABELLA .. he was an outstanding youth in my opinion, his style unique and I enjoyed the way he harnessed the energy of the hits he received, I am looking forward to seeing more of him; there was also Charles aka 21 from Golden Fist; my son Irie Andersson also from Golden Fist, novice, first fight .. i enjoyed watching him box there was an arm length difference which frustrated the fight – i look forward to seeing him again … Ryan also from Golden Fist was the main bout – Ryan commands your attention … when you see him box you know without a doubt there is lots more to come … there was also Michel am not certain if he was with Golden Fist or not, the crowd was roaring for his opponent who appeared to be overpowering and dominating the fight – he was not, Michel was in control from beginning to end, he never seemed to tire, his technical work was clean and he had a quick powerful jab that was not readily seen.
    I was very impressed with the younger youth, I never thought I could enjoy boxing from such young athletes.
    My love for the sport has been renewed!!

I agree with you that the card was excellent besides what seemed to be managerial /technical hiccups.May the team stick together with discipline, and may all the participants continue to improve in style and character.
