While the fight against Covid 19 remains, it is clear through the collective efforts of one and all, that we seem to be ahead on points at this stage. There is no time for complacency and we must continue to be both vigilant and cautious.

With my own beloved country of South Africa wagging behind the rest of the world, we now seem to be in a much improved situation with currently less than 1000 new cases daily.

As the conditions here improved drastically, President Ramaphosa moved the level imposed down to 1 - the lowest level that we have, and which thankfully will allow spectators to be back in attendance at shows.

This means a tremendous amount for the local promoters, most of whom struggle to secure funding for their shows, and who need an audience in order to pay some of the bills.

We have some tremendous news coming up which will be revealed hopefully by the end of the week, but at the same time we have several shows lined up in Korea, Botswana, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, DRC, Germany, Mexico, USA, France to mention but a few, and in addition I have been in discussions with several other countries which hopefully will result in further WBF contests.

Of course depending on the Covid situation, we are eyeing a potential Convention in 2022 but a decision will only be made early next year and dependent again on the world situation.

We have had a few zoom sessions with our team and representatives, and the mood has always been good, positive and always with shared humor at all times.

Eddie heads to Pietermartizburg SA next weekend and both he and I will be in Botswana the week after.

Stay safe and remain positive at all times.

Until next time, keep punching.

Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
