A landmark partnership has been announced to help accelerate the growth of Olympic boxing in the UAE.

The UAE Boxing Federation joined forces with Sovereign Boxing Championship to form Sovereign Boxing series and host events, attract top-name talent, and develop a pathway for up-and-coming fighters from the UAE, Middle East and globally.

Sovereign announced themselves on the local scene with a highly successful outing last November which saw country teams pitted against each other, with top-talent from the UAE, Ireland, Afghanistan, Morocco and Bahrain taking part in Dubai.

Sovereign showrunner and promoter Don Idrees said: “This is a huge partnership, not only for us but Olympic boxing in the region as a whole.
“We are committed to developing the sport in this country and the region. We want to develop local talent, and plan to bring in big-name unique fights that will resonate on a world scale.

“There is a real hunger for Olympic boxing to grow in the region and we are delighted to be onboard with the UAE Boxing Federation to help on that mission.”
