During the meeting, Umar Kremlev told about the current situation in boxing in the world. Herzog said that he constantly watched the fights of Muhammad Ali and other boxing stars of the 70s with his father.

The father of the incumbent Israeli leader, the 6th President of the country Mr. Chaim Herzog, used to be a successful boxer.

Authorities should give more support to the sport, including financial injections. Israeli President promised that more attention will be given to boxing.
