All of this will be built within the UFFS platform.” “I could not be more thrilled to welcome The Punch Boxing. For the first time UFFS is not only expanding out of North America but is partnering with the biggest boxing league in India,” added Cole Bablitz, UFFS co-founder and Head of Combat Sports. “It will also be the first time in history a league has ever been tokenized — the exposure for both UFFS and India’s Punch Boxing will be vast.”
