RIEMPIES' PRIDE: Mark Stols (middle) of Son Rise Boxing club with his champs showcasing their trophies.

ESTABLISHED just 11 months ago, the new boxing club in Riemvasmaak, Eden Park has already made an impact around Ekurhuleni with the young champs winning trophies at tournaments.

About five years ago, Eden Park had a boxing club which trained at the old 527 Night Club. Many young girls and boys eagerly joined the club which unfortunately after one and a half-year came to an abrupt stop and the club ceased to exist.

On August 2, 2016, a new boxing club was established by Mark Stols at 91 Ray Phiri Street in Riemvasmaak Extention Five. The main aim of the club is to keep young boys busy and keep them away from drugs.

Since the establishment, the club has participated in 12 tournaments where they won trophies. Their most recent won is the Sanabo Institution Friendly in Tsakane where they took their latest trophy.

“Our boys are serious about boxing and are well disciplined. Their ages range from 11 to 17 and we have 11 outstanding boxers who always win trophies.

“My wish is for Eden Park parents to encourage their young boys to join the club. We train from Monday to Thursday from 5.30pm to 7pm,” said Mark Stols who is an ex-boxer from Riverlee.

For more information about the club Mark can be contacted at 081 561 3773.
