The tilt will be Ed Picson’s first since being appointed as the federation’s president last month.

“We have already informed all our boxers and coaches that we have a Christmas break from December 18 to January 8. But then the invitation came out so we had to sadly inform them,” said Picson on Tuesday during the PSA Forum.
