KUWAIT: Kuwait Boxing Federation Secretary General Salem Al-Azmi said Kuwait will host the first Arab Juniors Boxing Championship from January 23 until January 29, 2020.
Al-Azmi welcomed the brotherly teams who will participate in the Arab championship, adding that having the Arab Federation asking KBF to organize the most important regional and continental championships is considered a renewed confidence in Kuwait youth ability to organize major events, adding that invitations will be sent to all federations, to make sure the largest possible participation.
Salem Al-Azmi said the Federation’s Board of Directors started preparation early to ensure that it comes out as hoped for, and to follow the huge success the Asian championship enjoyed in August, when 150 boxers represented 21 countries.
He said the board of directors is keen on providing all means that will bring out the Arab championship in way that reflects the bright image of Kuwait sport.
He said the success is not that of the board of directors, rather it is for all Kuwait youth. He lauded the support KBF receive from Kuwait Olympic Committee and its Chairman Fahad Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad and Public Authority for Sport led by its Director General Dr Humoud Fulaiteh.
