Boxers back in the ring

LOCAL kickboxers Chey Kosal, Outh Phouthang and Pich Sophan have been given permission by the Cambodian Amateur Boxing Federation to fight this weekend, with Chey Kosal taking on Long Sophal Saturday at Bayon TV. The other two have yet to see their opponents confirmed. The trio will make their return to the ring for the first time since being banned by former federation president Oum Yourann last July. Pich Seiha’s boxing licence was reinstated by the new federation committee as well, and he won his comeback bout against Chan Ratana by points decision Saturday at Bayon TV.
