So we are calling on people to show interest. Event Organizers can take part in this seminar, because you’ll learn about how boxing is organized, like Match makers. They can take part of this event and make it Big. Individuals, graduates who want to go into event organization or event management, people who love sports and can be boxing Judges, referees and coaches can take advantage of this as it is free.”

The Regional Boxing Federation since its resurrection in 2015 had its first bout in August 2017. There are plans to further promote the sport in the region by setting up district associations.
