‘I am happy with the level of boxing displayed here today, new boxers have cone on board and won bouts in their maiden appearances, we however have to improve in the coaching department, boxer have the power to last, but something is lacking, we are therefore looking at foreign coaches to boost our technical wing’ Said UBF President Moses Muhangi.

“Every champion will have a belt in their respective weight category at the end of Champions league in December, and not a medal as it was in the first tournament,” Muhangi added.
