Coaches & Trainers

Gloves & Glory is lucky to have Olympians, Common wealth medalists, Ugandan boxing legends, and lads on the national teal (the bombers) on our coaching & training team. So you’re in amazing hands, particularly if you are really keen to learn the sport and dvelop your techniques.

This website is new, and this pages needs to be updated with better pictures and bios in due course, but this will give you an idea for now:

Head Coaches

Hassan Khalil

Hassan started East Coast Boxing Club, Naguru, with his twin brother Hussein. East Coast is one of the best amateur boxing clubs in Uganda, and trained boys and girls that made the national team, the Olympics and even bought back medals from the Commonwealth games. Hassan is a legendary coach and also has a legendary fight record for Uganda too 




Patrick Lihanda       

Patrick is an double Olympian, having competed in the 1984 & 1988 Olympic games for Uganda. He’s also the head coach of the National team, “The Bombers”.

Hassan & Patrick, as well as developing your talents, are also developing the talents of our youth boxers too. watch this space!
