Charlotte Region Boxing Report

As the year comes to a close I wonder if anything will be happening around here in 2013. For a while in 2012 it was starting to look like boxing was forcefully nudging its way back into the Charlotte region market. A total of eight pro events took place in the Epi Center, Music Factory, Convention Center, and Silver Hammer venues from February until last month. A number of them hosted by World of Champions, a promotional company operated by Bellonora McCallum. All indications seemed that Ms. McCallum was striving to bring together talented fighters from around the country here to The Queen City and to focus, especially, on local boxers from in the Carolinas, giving them an opportunity to compete as well. The promoter had also expressed her intentions to present amateur boxing events.

While trying to research upcoming events around Charlotte I checked the Twitter accounts for Bellonora McCallum and WOC (World of Champions). Ms. McCallum last Tweeted from her personal account on July 14 (not about boxing). WOC has a Tweet on July 30. Hopefully we’ll be hearing from them soon.

As I review the latest Schedule of Events spreadsheet from North Carolina’s Boxing Commission, it appears that five applications to feature events have been submitted for the coming year. All of them MMA; no boxing.

The closest to Charlotte pro boxing event coming up next will take place at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem (about 78 miles from Charlotte). Those bouts are scheduled to occur on December 8th (the same night Manny Pacquiao fights Juan Manuel Marquez on a pay-per-view showing). The Winston-Salem boxing event hosted by Ring of Dreams follows MMA that evening at the same venue. I haven’t been able to sort out the cards, because the Boxing Rec site is showing one lineup, and the Ring of Dreams site another.

If anyone is aware of any amateur or professional boxing (male or female) events coming soon to the Charlotte area, please contact me at GAR1680@gmail.com or post info here. No MMA please.
