Judith Heard appointed Africa’s boxing ambassador

She might not be active anymore in the in modelling industry but Judith Heard is winning in fields we did not expect her to win in.

The socialite was given an ambassadorial role at the beginning of this month by Mr. Umar Kremlev, the president of the International Boxing Association to be an ambassador of boxing in Africa.

“I am excited about the new role and endorsement first because it’s a game that I have always loved and supported. Seeing these young girls fight in those rings and become champions is so beautiful,” said Judith Heard.

She added that with this endorsement, she is going to introduce more women to the game through a project called boxing for fitness. “We are going to do it for both safety and fitness starting next year. I invite and call upon all Ugandans that would love to be fit through boxing to join me in this new role and we make it happen.”

Part of her role as the boxing ambassador will be to increase awareness about the sport, improve social selling, and build trust among boxing lovers and fans.

Kremlev has pledged to build a modern boxing complex in Uganda.

Heard was earlier this year crowned the Miss Environment Africa International in Mumbai, India, and is also the reigning Miss Elite 2021- 2022.
