The championship activity started with a technical meeting, then medical checkup and weigh-in was held over the weekend on Sunday, November 26th and action starting today, Monday, November 27th 2023.

UBF President Moses Muhangi  talking to wallnetnews says that every approved member club presented its boxers at this year’s  championship and it was fully sponsored by Uganda boxing federation.

“We went for  open space for our fans to enjoy  both proceedings on the two boxing rings, as UBF we were overwhelmed by the big number of registered boxers compared to the previous novice editions,” said Muhangi.

This  year with the little funds we are having, we decided to have it in open space at Lugogo and the finals will be at the indoor MTN arena.

“To minimize the fans and to cover some of the expenses during the competition at least fans will part with 5000 for entrance and am happy  they have responded well, coming in big numbers to drum up support for the boys and girls, We are working  hand in hand with police and other security agencies to ensure safety. We expect the best boxing and the winners will qualify for the intermediate championship,”  he added.
