Johannesburg - Boxing SA's chairman, Ngconde Balfour, tendered his resignation, with immediate effect, the Ministry of Sport said on Friday.

"Minister (Fikile) Mbalula thanked Mr Balfour for his sterling job and for steering the boxing sport to greater heights," the ministry said in a statement.

"Since being appointed in September 2011, Mr Balfour, together with his team have profiled boxing and ensured all the policy and programmatic bottlenecks are attended to."

A new BSA chairman would be appointed before the provincial and national indabas start on August 23, with an aim to discussing the turnaround strategy for boxing in South Africa.

In his letter of resignation, Balfour, a former minister of sport, said he was proud of BSA's "unqualified annual report this financial year".

"You gave us some mandates to achieve and your support was never waivering," he said of Mbalula.

"Integrity and good governance are important to me and I will never compromise those. "May your support for boxing continue."
