The Big Fight Night (BFN) Promotions is up and running in Uganda after the promotions company earlier this week unveiled a state of the art ring at Old Kampala Arena.
The BFN has clear intentions of nurturing and promoting fighters to promoted ranks.
BFN CEO Omario briefly commented: “The fight Sport is one of the fastest growing sport, you all know that UFC fighter Conor McGregor is the highest paid athlete and for us to embrace such an idea shows that we are tapping into the fastest growing sport.”
The new Ring cost BFN promotions approximately Shs60m. “This is a standard ring and it can host any fight event and fighter. Its 24×24 feet and the inside Arena measures 19×19.”
BFN wants to achieve their set goals through staging fight events in different locations of the country.
The fights, set to start late this year, will be called Big Fight Nights. They will be organized in a series format of fighting events that will be held four times a month at a set number of locations.
The event was attended by Salim Uhuru, the Kampala Central Mayor who also doubles as the president Uganda Pofessional Boxers Commission.
“This is a great initiative,” started Uhuru. “Sh60m is not peanuts and I thank my brother (Omario) for the big heart. He is here as a promoter and we are going to support him. I call upon all other promoters especially for UPBC which I head to utilise this facility and I am sure its going to be flexible in terms of rates charged.”
