Plans are in top gear by the FESTAC Boxing Gym and Sports Club to honour the Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Ayodele Adewale for his support for boxing development in the Local Government.
Disclosing arrangements for a boxing tourney to hold later in the year, Chief Coach of the club, Oluwafemi Sholanke, said to reciprocate the love shown to the gym since the Chairman was elected into office, the organisers would make the proposed boxing competition a yearly affair.
Sholanke hinted that Adewale has shown his love for boxing hence the need for the boxing tourney to keep his dream alive.
‘We are working on modalities on how we can show appreciation to Comrade Adewale for the assistance he has been giving us. That is why we plan to stage an amateur boxing competition annually in his honour”.
