The stories

Posted 05-13-2010 at 08:22 AM by zelley
Beyond the actual boxing, coaching and officiating, I've written a few things about amateur and professional boxing. One such series was in a Greater Victoria sports weekly called "The Sportcaster". That covered the years 1974 to 1983 with a focus primarily on amateur boxing
with a Greater Victoria story line.

Some of the headings:
1979: VICTORIA BOXERS WIN EMERALD GLOVES
1981: BALLENDINE IN CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
1980: BUCKSKIN BOY KO's THREE
1975: SILENT DANGER
1980: BALLENDINE - A SILVER BOY
1976: DYNAMITE DAN IS BACK
1980: THREE TRAVEL TO TRIPLE WIN
1976: CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING
1980: SEVENTIES BOXING BIRTH GROWTH COMMENDABLE
1975: O'SULLIVAN A CHAMP
1976: THE RUST IS REMOVED
1978: THREE NEW CHAMPIONS TO END '77 RIGHT
1978: AMATEUR BOXING
1981: BOXERS EARN VICTORIA PROMINENCE
1979: ROBINSON WINS NATIONAL SILVER
1982: ZELLEY'S ROUND: BOXING PLANNED FOR VICTORIA
1981: BALLENDINE NAMED BEST IN BC
1977: VICTORIANS WIN EIGHT OF NINE

Of course there were other media sources such as
the "Times-Colonist" - one of my contributions appeared in an pP-Ed piece on September 3, 1992 called:
"Counterpunch For Boxing": By Brian W. Zelley
- the opening line says it all -
"Despite many obstacles, the bruised and battered sport of amateur boxing survives..."

the closing line hits back:
"The anti-boxing zealots would better serve society
by putting their negative energy into building society
by reducing poverty, racism and crime."

    Since 2010 there have been many more stories including
    2012 Olympic boxing, 2013 BC Amateur Boxing Hall of Fame, and Canadian Professional Boxing, also, some on the new
    Canadian Golden Gloves tournament beginning in 2013.
