Can it be true that we are already in 2014?Has it been over four years since we restructured a new and improved World Boxing Federation, based on integrity, transparency, quality and professionalism? I look back at our achievements over the past few years, and am proud of our team for their hard work, dedication and commitment in striving to make the WBF a top boxing sanctioning organization.

There can be no doubt that we are arguably the top sanctioning body in the world with regard to womenís boxing, with many of our champions, past and present, occupying the # 1 spot in the world in their respective weight divisions. Even with this outstanding performance, we will not sit back idly. 

Rather we will continue to set the highest standards for our womenís section and continue to acquire and maintain champions who hold top spots in world boxing. What is even more rewarding at this point, is to see the pride and excitement that our champions have in being WBF title holders.

Our menís section improved dramatically with several new countries being introduced as WBF partners. Sure, we have much work to do in this area, but we have set our standards high and will not compromise one inch on the high professionalism we have set, and in turn expect from our champions and promoters. 

Already 2014 looks to be an exciting and adventurous road to travel. We are in discussions with several new countries regarding staging fights on their turf, and such negotiations are at an advanced stage. Our WBF team continues to grow with appointments pending in the Philippines, Uganda and South America.

Finally let me take this opportunity in wishing each and every one of you a good and successful and healthy 2014. Set your standards high, dream big, remain principled and true to yourself, and above all - make the right choices!

Until next time, keep boxing.


Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
