What We Do
Our aim is to grow and popularise boxing as key sport in Africa.
Through donations and programs, we foster youth development.
We leverage the sport of boxing to raise champions and change lives.
Xaba Promotions is a company based Amalinda, East London and is one of the most prominent and successful boxing promotions in the country, with international presence and recognition.
The company was established in 2007 by a young professional from the Eastern Cape, and now is invariably known as a brand that has achieved many levels of success and which has a high appreciation of how the sport of boxing can change a life.
Being rooted at the city which has long been regarded as “the Hub of Boxing” and the province affectionately recognised as “The Mecca of Champions”, over the years the Xaba Promotions has established itself as a brand that everyone desires to be associated with in the boxing fraternity and which continues to seamlessely host world class boxing tournaments.
Since 2008, Xaba Promotions has become the first promoter’s choice of any boxer or champion in the province, garnering unprecedented success in the sport. With a solid stable of championship fighters, trainers and staff, we have blazed our own trail to unprecedented success over the past years of operation.
We are proud to have raised World Champions, International Champions and South African Championships, and are regarded as one of the top 3 promoters in South Africa.
