“A meeting is scheduled to take place at the Olympic Youth Development Centre, OYDC, on Saturday 20th April to dicuss the amending of the Zambian Boxing Federation Constitution.We have invited all boxing clubs to the meeting because the Constitution will be for their benefit mainly and we want them to be able to share their grievances and ideas,” Lundu said.

He stated the the input of the affiliate clubs in this constitution is very important because the document affects them.
