He promised to reconstruct the dilapidated state of the gyms, with leaky roofs and damaged floors and walls due to the rainy season.

Recognizing the importance of boxing as one of the most popular sports in the region, the President aims to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is in place for aspiring boxers to train and excel.

“Thanks to the unwavering support from both the national federation and the government, the tournament is set to become a reality. This aligns with the President’s vision to develop sports in the country, a goal shared by the United Nations and the nation’s leader,” Kremlev said.
