The Dragons gave them $80,000 for a 30% piece of the company.

Boxing is looking to make a comeback on the Island with a series of amateur bouts scheduled for May 28 in Esquimalt at the “Back on Track” event.

Jason Heit started Championship Promotions, the company putting on the event, in the hopes of hosting more local boxing matches, which have been scarce over the past two years, especially on Vancouver Island.

It’s a symbolic sign of the times, one that could apply to many sports or arts ventures, that the first post-pandemic amateur boxing card on the Island is billed Back on Track.

 

The 13-bout card is on ­Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Bayview Place Roundhouse and will feature boxers from ­Western Canada eligible to compete for berths in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.

 

It is the first amateur card on the Island since the 2019 Canadian championships held on Bear Mountain, which was the first qualifying step for the Tokyo Olympics. A lot has happened since then. Not much of it good.

 

“Full credit to these athletes who stayed busy and motivated through the pandemic. ­Boxing careers are short and it has not been easy on them,” said ­Victoria coach Jason Heit, whose Champ Productions is hosting the card.

 

“It’s been frustrating but everybody is back and moving. There’s a lot of talent in Western Canada but it needs cards and bouts in which to develop.”

There’s not much Jason Heit hasn’t done in combat sports.

As a fighter, Heit competed in boxing, kickboxing and MMA. And away from the cage or ring, he looked after the likes of Drew Barrymore, David Duchovny, Nicolas Cage and Robbie Williams as a bodyguard.

“It’s been a wild journey, that’s for sure,” said Heit. “Rubbed elbows and looked after every celeb you can imagine.”

These days, the veteran Vancouver Island fight coach is putting his promoter’s hat back on. Heit and Champ Promotions are staging a boxing card Saturday at the Roundhouse at Bayview Place in Victoria
