In addition, the agreement mentions accelerating progress by supporting young boxers and providing scholarships to all the individual talents.

BFI’s VP also added that this collaboration will definitely help in motivating and finding fresh talents and take this sport to a different level, where the objective is to host as many international camps and tournaments and invite foreign teams.
