LAHORE The Pakistan Sports Board has allowed the Pakistan Boxing Federation to host seven international boxing teams ahead of the Commonwealth Games for joint training session. President PBF Doda Khan Bhutto, Vice President Iqbal Hussain and General Secretary Muhammad Akram Khan met Director General of Pakistan Sports Board Syed Amir Hamza Gilani on Tuesday at PSB National Coaching Centre in Karachi. We have get the approval from our parent body for joint training session but the PSB has cut the number of participating teams from 10 to six. We will invite to six teams for training as we already have got confirmation from Malaysia, Central Republic of Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Rwanda, Nigeria, Uganda and Cameroon, Doda said. Director General PSB Amir Hamza Gilani appreciated the PBF efforts. He also said: We dont host such type of big events because our own team is preparing at Islamabad for the Commonwealth Games so we would face accommodation problems for the foreign players. Apart from that there would be financial issues, but looking at the interest of the PBF we will back the federation, said he. The Pakistan boxing officials said they were grateful of the PSB, Federal Sports Ministry and other government officials for their support. The joint training camp would start in Islamabad from August 25 and terminate on September 28.
