Surrey Boxer in qualifications for the Olympics
The Indo Canadian Voice is reporting that "Eric Basran of Surrey will be participating in the American Olympic Qualification event in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from March 26-April 3 as well as the World Olympic Qualification event in Paris, France, from May 13-24 for a chance to earn a spot for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. This comes after Eric defeated Jean Gardy Francois of Quebec last week on Thursday and Leo Kamara of Ontario the following day in his 57 kg weight category – both wins were unanimous at the 2019 Canadian Qualification in Montreal. The best Elite boxers across Canada were in action to confirm the National Team selection ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualification events next spring."
The 2019 Canadian Olympic Boxing qualification tournament was held in Montreal December 16th - 20th. I'm trying to find out the rest of the results. I think Wyatt Sanford from Nova Scotia also made the team. He won both his fights in Montreal.
