Guess what went down on November 30, 2023? The Royal Rumble Boxing Championship in Bahrain was all happening under the watchful eye of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa – the First Deputy President of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports, President of the General Sports Authority, and President of the Bahrain Olympic Committee!
So, picture this: The Bahrain Boxing Federation and the Bahrain Rugby Club teamed up to make this championship a reality, and it wasn’t your average event. Nope, we’re talking VIPs, ambassadors, and all those fancy guests making the scene. And the best part? More than BD60,000 was raised to support the efforts of the Royal Humanitarian Foundation!
His Highness Sheikh Khalid conveyed his heartfelt congratulations to His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, on the victory of the Royal Guard team in the championship. Six out of nine wins against the British Army’s “Parachute Unit” – that’s how Bahraini boxing rolls!
Why did the Royal Guard team rock it? According to His Highness, it’s all about mixing it up with top-notch teams internationally, gaining experience, and leveling up. Bahrain’s combat sports are on the rise, especially boxing stealing the spotlight. His Highness is on a mission – he wants Bahrain to be a champ factory, dominating the global stage, including the 2024 Paris Olympics.
In a nutshell, the Royal Rumble Boxing Championship was a big hit, showing off Bahraini fighters’ insane skills. And with His Highness Sheikh Khalid leading the charge, Bahrain’s ready to throw some knockout punches on the world stage.
