Itís been a crazy past few weeks, with World Boxing Federation (not to be confused with other fake outfits!) fights taking place with great regularity in all corners of the world.

As we continue to grow and make more and more friends worldwide it seems that certain individuals outside the WBF are unhappy at the continued growth of the World Boxing Federation.

Rather than waste my time focusing on these negative individuals let me simply reiterate that it is a shame that the honesty, integrity and professionalism of the WBF causes a bit of negativity from individuals whose names are not even worth mentioning. On to positive things then:

2017 has flown by and the WBF is about to set a new record with regards to the number of fights worldwide and the number of countries we work and associate ourselves with.

From a personal point of view, I have been all over the show and met and worked with some amazing people Ė people who appreciate the high standards set by the WBF and the warm working relationships we have established with them.

Japan, USA, South Korea, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Egypt to mention but a few have been on my radar lately and it has been my pleasure to meet legitimate boxing people who tell it the way it is without any nonsense.

The year is winding down but we continue to be active with almost a dozen fights scheduled for the next five weeks. While I will officially thank everyone in my final Presidents Column next month let me say that I am incredibly privileged to lead a team of dedicated, hard-working, knowledgeable and at times crazy people.

We are indeed a family, close and supportive of one another. Yes, families sometimes differ in opinions on certain issues, and the WBF is no different, however we debate vehemently and passionately for one reason only Ė and thatís to make the WBF bigger and better all the time.

As our fantastic North & Central American Chairman Sergio Sotelo would famously say: Seguimos avanzando, we keep moving ahead.

No rest for the wicked as I pack my bags for Korea in a few daysí time, when I get to see my good friend Hoo Sik Choi in Seoul. Guess Iíd better go off and practice a bit of Korean before I leave!

Until next time, keep boxing.

Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
