boxing complex in Uganda. I pledged the support of @Parliament_Ug towards the boxing fraternity”.

Kremlev intends to establish the biggest academy in the country to support the boxing profession.

The IBA boss who came on the invitation of the Uganda Boxing
Federation (UBF) President, Moses Muhangi, was in the country on a three-day visit until December 2, 2022.

Kremlev was re-elected as president of IBA during two of the IBA Extraordinary Congress held in Turkey in May early this year, and went through unopposed when his opponent Van der Vorst from Netherlands was found ineligible.

According to Muhangi, the visit of Kremlev is aimed at reviving the boxing profession in Uganda.
