Many times Hungarian boxing champion and trainer, Kálmán Buga went to see the mayor of a district in Budapest (Rákospalota) to get the permission to put in practice a disused tavern. He told the mayor that he would build a training room for boxers with voluntary work there. It now makes a home for the István Edőcs Boxing Club which has already given several junior champions to Hungary.
Initially there were mostly Romanys who visited the club but the company slowly became mixed. The guys are trained by chief coach Kálmán Buga and trainer István Turu who also works for the Hungarian National Boxing Team.
Some weeks ago So si?’s reporter visited the club.
