    This conference should focus more on grassroots clubs like colts, 2nd, 3rd and 1st division and so on.This levels needs finances and the so called corporate bodies needs to aid these level! This is the only way we can achieve excellence in sports. The lover division needs to be revamp so that they can develop talent! Boxing needs help. This bodies needs to partner the boxing federation to invest more in them. The corporate bodies will benefits a lot from this ventures!
