It's been a crazy last few weeks - I have been in the USA for Amir Mansour's impressive defence of his Intercontinental title, in Tanzania where Francis Cheka showed he has all the tools in winning the world super middleweight title and of course Saarbruecken in Germany where a globally representation was evident at our World Convention.

Before talking about the Convention it would be remiss of me not to publicly applaud and congratulate DOG Eventboxing, and Oliver Heib and Bernhard Notar certainly left no stone unturned in making this a brilliant and unforgettable weekend of boxing. On behalf of all at the WBF a big debt of gratitude to DOG Eventboxing!

The Convention itself was fantastic - and made so memorable by so many factors. The organization was exemplary, the hotel was superb, the food excellent, the excursions interesting and the fight night unforgettable.

But for me more important than all that was the fact that the people who attended were wonderful. 

Warm, humorous, knowledgeable, and more so all part of the World Boxing Federation family. For me to personally spend time with virtually every person and getting to know them even better was something I will treasure. Our delegates were great, each and every one of them, and their superb qualities as human beings contributed much to making our organization grow further.

The World Boxing Federation will never lower itself to ridiculous titles like Youth Interim, or Silver Interim or Special Gold. These titles are for the cheaters among the sanctioning bodies! We will never go back on our word as integrity is part and parcel of who and what we are. We will continue to thrive setting high standards, but while doing so, ensure that what we do is professional and meaningful.

Again my sincere thanks and appreciation to every single person who came to our Convention from far and near. We have a great family - long may it continue.

Until next time, keep boxing.

Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
