As 2016 draws to a close, one simply wonders where the time has gone. It seems like yesterday that the WBF Senior Executive were doing an analysis on 2015 and setting goals for 2016. While the year indeed was successful in many areas, we still need to work harder next year in achieving new and improved goals.


In 2016 we had an increase of over 20% in the number of fights in comparison with 2015, we made friends with several new countries and had a remarkably memorable World Convention just to mention a few of our successes.


While we try to fill some of our vacant titles next year, we will never lose sight of who we are and what we stand for as an organization. We will not, while some other sanctioning bodies do, compromise on our integrity, transparency and honesty, and we will continue at all times to deliver the most professional service possible.


Without mentioning anyone by name, I would like to thank collectively the entire team at the WBF family for their hard work, dedication, time, effort and above all the sacrifices made in order to keep the WBF at the high standards we expect.


I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a wonderful and prosperous New Year. While boxing is a way of life for all of us involved in this great sport, let us not lose sight of the fact that family is more important than anything.


I urge you all to spend some of this festive season with your loved ones, appreciate what you have, and come back stronger and ready for boxing action in 2017.


Until next time, keep boxing.

Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
