In addition to making an appeal to the people of Palencia, “whether they are fans of this sport or not, because they will surely enjoy themselves,” the councilor wanted to highlight, on the one hand, the City Council’s gratitude to the figure of Carlos Encinas, provincial delegate of Boxing, “for the work that has been done in recent years to revive this discipline in Palencia and place it as a place of reference thanks to these appointments”, and, on the other, to the Spanish Boxing Federation, represented by the coach national, Rafa Lozano, for, “betting on Palencia for the third time in a row in the same year to host one of its tests.”
“We are going to take advantage and make the most of the trust that the Spanish Boxing Federation has placed in us, always keeping the doors open to this highly acclaimed sport, which for so many years has not had the visibility it justly deserves,” said the Councilor for Sports, who concluded by assuring that the “injustices that have been committed with the Spanish team in the Tokyo Olympics, and of which we have all witnessed, far from generating rejection, will make us become even more hooked on this discipline”.
