The Nairobi based businessman said that former female World Champion Conjestina Achieng was an inspiration to all boxers and if there were proper structures in place to support boxers, the former pugilist would not have undergone the experience she has up to now.
Alila said he will empower boxers like Conjestina and other unsung heroes to mentor others by training them professionally.
He added that he intends to streamline Boxing activities so that Kenya can regain its lost glory. He stated that there are many upcoming talents especially in counties that need to be tapped and given the necessary equipment to prosper.
The Businessman said that boxers have had to contend with fighting without gloves, head gear, mouth guards and proper and standard rings.
"I promise to revive boxing that has been on its knee for a while, if elected I will streamline the game of boxing and ensure that we return the sport to the limelight," said Alila.
Alila said that he was saddened by the way sports affairs were being run in the country especially boxing that has been the pride of Kenyans for a while.
The aspiring chairman said that he was saddened to see many former boxers living in deplorable conditions.
Many boxers have been thought to have mental illness as a result of being hit on the head and there after being neglected by the sporting industry and the government.
While Unvieling his manifesto on Tuesday at Pal Pal Gym in Nairobi Alila said: “As an all-round sportsman I have seen the need to serve boxing as KPBC chairman. I want to bring the needed change in professional boxing. I want to see boxers being the main stakeholders of their sweats and hard work and not the rogue promoters.”
Alila pledged to improve boxers’ welfare and establish a close link with current and former pugilists besides promoting the sport among women
