The City of Niš has invested 3.3 million dinars in the adaptation and equipping of the training hall for Niš boxers with the goal of returning this sport to the paths of old glory. This was said during a tour of the hall and a visit to Niš boxers by Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski, with the president of the Boxing Association of Serbia, Nenad Borovčanin and the Member of Niš City Council Branislav Kačar.The completely renovated hall is located in the building of the Sports Association of Niš. Dragana Sotirovski said that Niš had a long and successful boxing tradition and that, by merging several clubs, a strong club should be created, both because of the results and financing. The Mayor was given boxing gloves, and she wished for the athletes to win new trophies and medals, and she announced the intention to provide a mobile ring so that boxing could be watched outdoors in the Fortress or Čair Park. Nenad Borovčanin pointed out that the boxers from Niš now have a gym and very good conditions where they will train for free, where new champions will be created, or if not champions, then certainly better people. The winner of the “Golden Gloves”, Nikola Lazarević, said that new and better conditions for training meant a lot to boxers and thanked the city for its help.
