JOHANNESBURG - Aug. 9, 2022 - PRLog -- We are changing the narrative by showcasing the difference between a combative sport with rules and non-sensical violence.  In tribute to women and girls, participating boxers have taken the TRC Pledge to End Gender Based Violence where they live. The TRC pledge breaks the silence around GBV and grows commitment to taking action to end GBV.  Our boxers will stand as influencers on the day, and their pledges will be played before they enter the ring. TRC Founder, Khalil Osiris says,  "The fact is, accountability in the fight to end GBV lies primarily with men. Events like these give us the opportunity to raise awareness about the impact of toxic masculinity and, hopefully, will encourage more men and young boys to take the TRC Pledge to end the violence against women and girls where they live."

We have 9 exciting fights lined up as well as a performance by popular artist, Tamara Dey. Our guest Judges include current ABU and Boxing South Africa Heavy Weight Title Holder, Chris Thompson and award-winning Actress, Zikhona Bali.

Attendees will take the TRC Pledge as a community and have the opportunity to record their pledges individually as well as enroll in the free TRC Orange Couch Conversations course. The online course educates and galvanizes students to prevent  and end GBV.
