The Asian Boxing Confederation realized that it should organize the funding and the requests of the National Federations to support them to achieve their goals and missions. The management of the Asian Boxing Confederation supported the National Federations in 2019 which was a busy year for our continent.

The Asian Boxing Confederation achieved a lot in the year of 2019 with record number of boxers attending in the continental events. The Covid-19 pandemic affected the work and the developments of the Asian Boxing Confederation in 2020 but this year will bring the chance to make the real return to the activities.

Mr. Kremlev is planning to go to the upcoming ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships to India where advertising of the event will be one of the key factor.

The finals should be held in the evenings to generate money from the media rights and broadcasts. Mr. Kremlev was thankful for Mr. Anas Alotaiba, Mr. Yousif Al-Kazim and Mr. Saken Polatov to their work and invitations.

The Executive Director of the Asian Boxing Confederation Mr. Ali Salameh introduced the successes of the continent. The Chairman of the ASBC Fund & Development Commission Mr. Saken Polatov thinks that we have to divide the continent into strong, medium and developing National Federations and we have to prioritize their real needs.
