Vice President of the World Boxing Association, Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, is pleased to announce that the WBA Board of Directors Meeting will be held on June 11-12 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The WBA Board of Directors meet annually to discuss new appointments, report on each region’s activity, and attend to other business matters.

“The WBA has written many pages in boxing history during the past several decades,” says Mendoza, “a task impossible to have achieved without much support and hard work during its many years in Europe. This is a great opportunity to reunite and share time together.”

“In light of our longtime loyal friendship, it would be both a pleasure and honor to have you among the attendees at our Gala Dinner on June 11. We look forward to seeing you there.”

    John Greese-Thanks for your humble opinion….Chudinov and his fine win definitely went under the radar and McDonnell who was truly whipping up on Kameda’s ass in the final round got less credit than Rodney Dangerfield.

    I agree John

    Say what you will about sanctioning bodies, but the WBA does have some great up and coming champions. Chudinov and McDonnell really surprised a lot of folks in their upset wins and vindicated their status as champs.
    And I think their top 15 rankings are actually the most fair out of the four major sanctioning bodies.  Just my humble opinion.
