USA Boxing Championships coming to downtown Shreveport


USA Boxing announced during a Thursday, afternoon news conference that the 2020 USA Boxing National Championships will take place at the Shreveport Convention Center.

Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins attended the press conference and also posted a comment about the boxing event on his Facebook page.

“I am happy to announce that USA Boxing will be in downtown Shreveport in December. This will be great entertainment and a wonderful experience for our city.”

The championships were supposed to take place in Lake Charles, but Hurricane Laura’s devastation to the area necessitated a change of venue.

“Hurricane Laura wreaked havoc on the city of Lake Charles and rendered their Civic Center inhospitable for this year’s National Championships.  This came on top of the pandemic which already nearly wiped out the 2020 National Tournament calendar,” stated Michael Campbell, USA Boxing Events and Operations Manager in a press release posted on USA’s webpage.
