The credit for its success goes to Amjad Khan, who promotes upcoming boxers and talented sportspersons in other disciplines. We also extend our sincere gratitude to the boxers, audience, and wonderful sponsors. Without whose support, the event would not have been possible,” said AKBF Vice President Shabbier Hamza.
