Some of Macarthur's best emerging boxing talent will jump into the ring this weekend.

Grange High Performance (GHP) will host an amateur boxing tournament at its Smeaton Grange gym on Saturday night.

GHP owner/head coach Anthony Redward said the event would feature boxers of all levels and abilities.

"It's a local tournament, so it will be grassroots through to a high standard of boxing," Redward said.

"There will be a lot of novice boxers including 15 or 16 from our gym.

"The tournament is aimed at being low cost and having a high impact."

The GHP amateur tournament will get under way at 6pm on Saturday, August 17.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for kids under 12.
