Local Minister for Sports, Manuel Cardeña, expressed support for the evening, saying “boxing is increasingly popular here in Marbella, especially among young people, who we are keen to support”. He stated “Our objective is to continue hosting national and international boxing competitions like we have in the past, and put Marbella on the map within the discipline”.
