Boxing, like other sports disciplines, faces financial challenges, which affects its operations.

BoBA public relations officer, Kenny Maragana said the association has numerous challenges including finance and shortage of qualified coaches.

He said the regions are affected most by financial constraints as there are no companies in rural areas to sponsor clubs. Due to financial constraints, clubs at times fail to participate in tournaments.

The new president, Thato Patlakwe ousted Michael Moroka during this year’s elections, and stakeholders are eager to hear what the new committee has in store for the sport.
