‘I am thankful to the government of Palestine, NOC President, National Federation, all people of the country to give an opportunity for boxers to compete. This center will become an international boxing academy, where competitions and training for athletes as well as education of coaches and referees and judges will take place. I want kids of Palestine to train free of charge and develop themselves as boxers. We will invest in the construction of this academy, and the whole boxing family will be happy to proudly make it happen,’ said President Kremlev.

‘I thank everybody who contributed to this academy and wait for you at the opening ceremony of this boxing center in 2024,’ he added.
