About a month after it opened, the Norfolk Boxing Center is hosting its first state championship Saturday.

Doors open for the Virginia State Silver Gloves Amateur Boxing Championships at 4 p.m. with matches beginning at 5 p.m. Tickets are $12 for those 16 and older, $8 for ages 6-15 and free for those under 5 years old.

The boxing center expects to hosts similar events in the future. The Norfolk Boxing Center will expand in 2017 to include a fitness membership and classes for adults.
