The newly elected Uganda Amateur Boxing Federation executive has set the wheels in motion ahead of this year’s Commonwealth Games.
The federation’s top brass has named an 18 member squad and is settling for nothing less than the proverbial KO in the games.
The eighteen-strong squad, whose names were submitted to the Commonwealth Games organising committee last year, will assemble at the Uganda amateur boxing federation offices in Lugogo tomorrow for debriefing by the new executive.
The debrief will clear the air before the team starts training ahead of the games due to take place in the Australian city of Gold Coast this April.
Only six of the 18 boxers summoned for training will represent Uganda in Gold Coast.
Preparing the Gold Coast-bound team is the first assignment Moses Muhangi’s administration is embarking on after assuming office barely a month ago.
Muhangi, who recently attended the AIBA elective assembly in Dubai, believes the conference will bring his new executive up to speed with the international body’s operations and leadership.
The new boxing leadership is, however, grappling with long-standing administrative wrangles.
Muhangi nevertheless believes the wrangles can be dealt with amicably.
Muhangi has since refurbished the Uganda amateur boxing federation offices at Lugogo, setting up various desks for his officials to execute their duties under the same roof.
