Uganda Professional Boxing Commission (UPBC) president Salim Uhuru says 2019 has been a successful year for professional boxing.
Uhuru also revealed his plans for 2020.
In 2019, the Uganda Professional Boxing Commission UPBC registered two wins that are Shafiq Kiwanuka and Frank Kiwalabye’s continental titles.
UPBC boss Salim Uhuru revealed that the pugilists and all others, who will win continental or world-recognized belts, will be added to the government payroll.
He adds that in 2020, his commission will start by ensuring that referees are more equipped with skills by organizing more trainings for them.
In 2019 UPBC ensured that they provide avenues for professional boxers to be more engaged with fights and the fruits have been evident.
