The Gabonese Boxing Federation has a new President and new leaders since this Saturday, April 22, 2023.
President Bonaventure Nzigou Manfoumbi and the new members of the Gabonese Boxing Federation were elected by the majority of the 5 league presidents present out of the 8 in Gabon.

The election took place in the presence of observers from the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Gabon, the Olympic Committee of Gabon and officials sent by the AFBC (Vice-President Azania Omo-agege and the President of the Ethics David M. Pina.
