Boxing classes for children of determination kick off in Dubai


Dubai: National and international boxers and other celebrities joined forces on Friday to kick off ‘Boxing with Determination,’ the UAE’s first-of-its-kind initiative to create an inclusive space for children of determination through boxing classes.

A small group of children of determination got their first lessons in punching and defending themselves inside the boxing ring at the Warehouse Gym in Al Quoz as part of the joint venture of the gym and Rise Events.

The coaches of the day included retired British Heavyweight Champion Scott Welch, two-time national UAE boxing champions Sultan Al Nuaimi and Fahad Al Bloushi and the UAE’s first female boxer Fahima Falaknaz.
