'We do not want to go back to the days when there was nothing to fight for in boxing.'

Boxing coaches and referees have been urged to concentrate on training future medallists instead of politicking.

UBF president Kenneth Gimugu made the appeal during the handover of certificates to coaches, doctors,referees who successfully passed the four day AIBA referees course held in last August at Lugogo.

The officials received their certificates at a function held at Lugogo UOC offices on Wednesday.

"We do not want to go back to the days when there was nothing to fight for in boxing. Go train athletes and use the knowledge you received here to solve problems in the gamet," Gimugu said.

"We as the executive shall continue organising activities that benefit the athletes and the technical wing as we sort out our differences."

He added that two coaches Lawrence Kalyango (COBAP) and Sam Kabugo (Kololo) have been taken to Ethiopia for the AIBA 2 star coaching course.

"We do not want to see a scenario where a Kenyan is on the ringside of Ugandan team like it was at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. That is why we are focusing on capacity building," Gimugu said.

Twenty five officials including Sunday Kisuko,Dan Kasole, Judith Nyanzi, Margret Kembabazi,Shamilah Mudemuki,Godfrey Basudde, Lawrence Kalyango, Peter Adengo  and Steven Tulibagenyi received certificates.
