WBC vice president Houcine Houichi, who is also the Africa Boxing Union (ABU) president said that the seminar will be conducted by top WBC ring officials Massimo Barroveccio and Glido Cavalleri. “This an important seminar for all the Arab, French and English speaking nations in Africa and I hope they will benefit immensely,” said Houichi, upon arrival in the country on Monday at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. “We want to update them on the changing rules of boxing in judging, refereeing and supervision,” explained Houichi, who will also meet to sports ministry officials during the two-day seminar.
