The GB Boxing Performance Programme has announced its entrants for next month’s National Amateur Championships 2019.

As the highest ranked boxers in their respective weight divisions in the country, each of the 10 boxers (four women and four men) will assume the position of number one seed.

England Talent boxers will announce their seed nominations – who become number two seeds – following the completion of regional qualifying tournaments around the country.
