Boxer faces toughest challenge to date

Darcie Kaye puts her skills to the test March 29, facing the experience and talent of Action Boxing's Jen Yeager.

Local boxer Darcie Kaye faces the toughest test of her young career in late March when she takes on Jen Yeager at the Cascades Casino in Langley.

The two will square off at the World Boxing Commission’s first amateur tournament in Canada. The WBC Western Canadian Championships start March 29, and Kaye takes on a tough and experienced opponent. Yeager represents Action Boxing Vancouver. She is an experienced, well rounded and aggressive boxer.

Kaye, a 28-year-old representing Chilliwack’s Four Directions Boxing, spars regularly against some of the top pro and amateur boxers in the country, but there’s no comparing practice to live action.

The tournament is hosted by Combsports, and is open to boxers with a minimum of six fights experience.

Winners at the WBC Western Canadian Championships move on to the WBC Canadian Championships May 17. Winners at that tournament will be eligible to fight in the WBC World Cup, tentatively taking place in Baja, CA.
