The Jordan Boxing Federation has launched a campaign to encourage more female boxers on the back of its National Women’s Boxing Championships held in Rashid Al Zyoud Hall in Al Hussein Youth City.
The event welcomed 80 boxers from different clubs across the Kingdom with a view to spreading the word of the opportunities available for women and girls.
The event was organised by the Federation’s Board Member, Arifa Bseiso, who said: “Having 80 boxers competing after long years of absence sends a very clear message that boxing is very much on the up for women and girls in Jordan.
“It was an amazing weekend and we would like to thank each and every one who supported us.”
Bseiso pointed out that the JBF is seeking to form a strong female team to compete at overseas tournaments.
