Aug 09, 2022

Cambodia Boxing Federation is aiming big when the Kingdom hosts the 32nd South East Asian (SEA) Games next May.

The federation is working hard to ensure its boxers are fully equipped for all the is needed to challenge for gold medals at the biggest multi-sport event in Southeast Asian region.

The Cambodia SEA Games Organizing Committee (CAMSOC) has urged Cambodia Boxing Federation to target at least one gold medal, but the federation dreams bigger and aims to achieve even more.

The Federation will fully support its boxers and give them a big boost to maintain their commitment and target of winning gold medals for the Kingdom.

“With our 2023 SEA Games plan, we have one boxer training in Thailand and another boxer training in Vietnam,” said Buy Sophoan, the Secretary General of the Cambodia Boxing Federation.

“We have a full strong men’s boxing squad with around 12 boxers. Our commitment is to at least achieve CAMSOC’s target of winning at least one gold medal.

“We will do our best to exceed the expectation.”

Cambodia Boxing Federation also has plans to send boxers to compete overseas to get more international experience ahead of the SEA Games 2023.

The federation also plans to organize local events that the boxers can compete every two weeks until the Games proper.
