CALGARY, April 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp. (BXX-TSXV) (OTC-BXXRF) ("Boxxer"): Further to news releases issued on January 30, 2014 and March 17, 2014, Boxxer is pleased to announce that it has completed the previously announced financing with Key Venture Capital Inc. ("Key") for total gross proceeds of $123,000 (the "Private Placement").  Pursuant to the Private Placement, Key was issued 2,460,000 units of Boxxer (the "Boxxer Units") at a price of $0.05 per Boxxer Unit.  Key intends that the Private Placement and subsequent Distribution and Dissolution (as described in the January 30, 2014 news release) will constitute Key's "Qualifying Transaction" pursuant to Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").  Each Boxxer Unit consists of one common share of Boxxer and one transferable share purchase warrant of Boxxer (a "Warrant").  Each Warrant shall be exercisable for five years at $0.05 per share and is subject to accelerated expiry provisions such that if at any time after the completion of the Private Placement the closing price of the common shares of Boxxer on the TSXV is at least $0.10 per share for 15 consecutive days, Boxxer may give notice that each Warrant will expire 15 business days from the date of providing such notice.  The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general working capital.

Boxxer expects that the Distribution of the Boxxer Units to the shareholders of Key, and the Dissolution of Key will occur within the next two weeks.  As previously announced on March 17, 2014, it is anticipated that upon the completion of the Distribution of the Boxxer Units and the Dissolution of Key, Sophia Leung, the Chief Executive Officer and a director of Key, will be appointed to the Board of Directors of Boxxer.

The completion of the Distribution and Dissolution, and the appointment of Ms. Leung to the Board of Directors of Boxxer, are subject to conditions, including but not limited to, the receipt of all requisite regulatory approvals, including final TSXV acceptance of the Key Qualifying Transaction.
