SOUTHERN SHOWDOWN 2013
CALLING ALL CONTENDERS!
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR - 2013!
TAKE THE JOURNEY - SET YOUR MIND FREE - BECOME A CONTENDER! WE ARE ON THE HUNT FOR UP TO 20 MEN AND WOMEN WHO KNOW THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO GO THE DISTANCE....
This is not your traditional boxing contest.
Sure - the finale of the programme is a spectacular boxing event where up to 20 local people will get in the ring in front of an estimated audience of 1500 people and put their chins on the line for a great local charity...
But it is a
lot more than that....ask any of the Contenders from last year!
There is over 4 months of blood, sweat and often tears that goes in behind the scenes to deliver the goods on the night.
First and foremost, it is not about the blood sport. It is not even all about the boxing.
This event is
about the experience, the environment, the atmosphere. It is about making sure every
person who participates is looked after, that all match-ups are fair, that
everyone gets as much
as they can as individuals out of the programme and that everyone is confident and
competent by the time they get into
It is about
creating a legacy of guys and girls who go through this programme over time and come out of it
not only having had the greatest experience of their life, but that they take
that experience and
apply it for the rest of their lives as fitter, healthier and more confident individuals.
As such, our focus is not on selecting the best or most accomplished boxers. It's not about who is the fittest or the strongest. It's not about who is the most well known around town. While we anticipate selecting a range of bouts that represent people across our entire community whether it is industry on industry, business on business, sport on sport, club on club, or even just mate on mate, our focus
remains at all times on finding the best and fairest match ups we can that have that special Dunedin relevance and then working through a training process to make sure they stay that way.
