1st Stage of the Ceará Boxing Championship will bring together athletes from all over the state in Limoeiro do Norte
As part of the evolution of “cross traininig” many fight academies are maintaining schedules with specific Boxing classes and, as a result of this process, several athletes are competing in amateur Boxing tournaments to 'sharpen their hands' and obtain a better performance in the mixed martial arts competitions.
Joining this wave, Limoeiro do Norte - already known as the "City of MMA" - could soon become a new hub of 'Nobre Art'. On March 28, the municipality located in the interior of Ceará will host the 1st Stage of the Ceará Boxing Championship, a competition that should have more than 40 fights worth up to 50 points in the state ranking.
According to Emanoel Barroso, president of the Ceará Amateur and Professional Boxing Council (CCB), the event will bring new categories this year, such as the category of 'People with Special Needs' and the 'Category for Trans Men and Women'.
- “It is a way of inserting these people in sport, giving them the necessary conditions of equity so that they can compete with their own regulations without any kind of deprivation” .- stated the president of the CCB, hoping that the initiative will stimulate the other states and that the repercussion reach international proportions.
The event - which is the most important of the category in the state - will also have divisions for children from 7 years old, and for adults over 40 years old.
This championship will bring together competitors from all over the state of Ceará and promises to be the first in a series of events to be held in the Vale do Jaguaribe region.
To participate in the Ceará Boxing Championship, athletes must access the entity's official website: ccboficial.org until the 15th of this month (maximum deadline for registration). The public that wants to attend the event will have a social ticket of R $ 5,00 + 1kg of food.
It is worth remembering that the current president of the CCB, Emanoel Barroso, has extensive experience as a professional Boxing, Taekwondo and MMA competitor.
Known by the nickname “Massa Bruta”, black belt 3rd Dan in Taekwondo says that his nickname will now be “Staff Bull” and is already preparing his return to the rings and 'cages'.
The 1st Stage of the Ceará Boxing Championship in Limoeiro do Norte, in fact, proved to be viable thanks to the partnership with Gean do Vale, promoter of mixed martial arts events, such as the LFC, where Emanoel Barroso made some of the most important fights in his MMA career.
