Q&A

  • I have no sparring experience, can I still participate?
    Yes! This event is open to all skill levels and gives you an opportunity to step in the ring with an opponent and a ref. There will be no decision, no scoring, and will be very closely monitored throughout.
  • If I can’t go more than a couple rounds, am I out of the competition?
    No, the goal is to do as many rounds as you can handle in 2.5 hours, but they do not need to be consecutive. So, if you want to take a break, watch some of the other sparring sessions or relax until you're ready to get back.
  • I’m not registered with Boxing Manitoba, can I still participate?
    Yes! Your Boxing Manitoba 2023 Rec-Membership is included in the Box-A-Thon registration. Because this is controlled body contact only, a formal medical is not required.
  • Can I support BOX-A-THON without getting in the ring?
    Of course! Please consider donating to some of your favourite trainers, class members and friends if they are participating.
  • If we give donations, do we get a donation receipt?
    There are no donation receipts this time, since the money raised is going to Pan Am Boxing Club, a non-profit not a charity.
  • Will I be matched up with an opponent according to weight and skill level?
    No. The Box-A-Thon is a fundraising event, not a fight card. Skill & weight will not be considered. However, referees will pay close attention to each ring and will immediately stop anything unsafe. You have the option to “pass” and move on to another ring if you are concerned about doing a round with certain participants. The goal of the event is to raise funds while having fun, not to win rounds.
  • Who collects the donation forms and what do I do with the money I raised?
    You are responsible to collect and hand in your donation forms no later than June 19, 2023.
  • How do I get started?
    You’ve taken the first step by reading this information package. Now you need to complete the registration form and start collecting pledges.
