NATIONAL Council of Sports (NCS) has released a road map for restructuring the Uganda Amateur Boxing Federation (UABF) with a view to have a functional executive in place by February.

The world amateur boxing body AIBA has already provided guidelines for a constitutional review for the domestic boxing.

NCS general secretary Jasper Aligawesa, said AIBA wants the local stakeholders to scrutinise the guidelines, debate them for situations that would befit the Ugandan environment.

 AIBA wants to havek a draft constitution for UABF within 30 days.

"We are going to invite stakeholders for a meeting and circulate the proposed AIBA constitution by December 15.

"We then shall gather proposals and amendments and send it back to the world boxing governing body early January," Aligawesa said at his office in Lugogo.

One of the contentious issues in the AIBA draft constitution is the article that locks out urrent, retired or semi retired professional boxers from engaging into any kind of administration in amateur boxing.

But it allows them to serve on various non-administrative committees.

This certainly locks out former professional boxer Godfrey Nyakana.

Nyakana took over as the UABF president in August 2007.

The official has been battling with physician Ntege Ssengendo over administrative control of UABF.
