National Intermediate Boxing Championships
 
KAMPALA - The Uganda Boxing Federation (UBF) has organised the National Intermediate Boxing Championships that will start Thursday and end on July 1 in various venues around Kampala.
 
The annual event begins this Thursday with a weighing in at Lugogo conducted at different intervals.
 
Club One 10 in Kawempe will host the first and second preliminaries for Friday and Sunday while the quarter finals are to be played at Katwe play ground on June 26 and the semifinals will be held at Kitintale KCCA Grounds in Nakawa Division on June 28.
 
The climax of the championships will be held in the city centre at the Kampala central division grounds.
 
In trying to fulfill their vows as the UBF leadership, the Public Relations to the governing body, Sula Ssenyonjo said that the reason as to why they have opted for different venues is to expose the sport to different communities in Kampala.
 
“We have tried to have this event in different areas so that the rest of the sport lovers can enjoy it from every corner and we are not stopping at this.
 
"We shall also involve districts so that we can scoop more attention as we earlier promised in our strategic plan,” said Ssenyonjo.
 
He also said that they will tackle bit by bit on their five-year strategic plan and having boxing extended to communities around the city and all parts of the country is part of their goals.
 
“This is the first time boxing has tried to do such a thing, having an event at different days and different venues and the boxing fraternity will earn and most especially our boxers have to be exposed,” Ssenyonjo added.
 
By press time, 10 clubs had registered and more were expected to be in good books with the federation by the weighing in process today.
 
KCCA Boxing Club the National Boxing League champions have already registered for the event, COBAP, East Coast, Lukanga, UPDF, Police, Zebra and Nakulabye are other clubs that have showed interest in the event.
