About K300,000 is needed for the successful hosting of the Lopez punch boxing fight night slated for Government complex on 10th June 2023.
Exodus Boxing Academy Director Christian Klima says the fight was budgeted for K500,000, with K200,000 raised so far.
Kalima says three title fights will take place on the night with Simon Ngoma versus Bernarde Sepe to headline the night.
Speaking during a media briefing, he called on boxing stables and promoters to work together for the growth of the boxing sport, while calling for support from the corporate world.
Meanwhile, Muchinga Ward 28 Councillor Lee Mukupa challenged female boxers to emulate 7 time Champion Esther Phiri and take the sport as a business.
Mukupa said he has engaged the office of the area member of Parliament for support for the bout.
