The Government of Atlantico, Department of Colombia, awarded the “Golden Gate of Colombia” medal to the president of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, thanks to his work for the sport and youth of that country, In addition to the work he has done throughout the world of boxing.

During the development of the evening “Double Impact”, the act of reception was carried out, in which the medal was placed on the president between applause and cheers of all those present at the Sugar Baby Rojas Coliseum in Barranquilla.

Mendoza spoke to everyone present and stressed that among his goals is to help Colombia’s talent. “Our intention is to show that in Colombia there are great warriors and there is great talent. I receive this recognition with great joy and on behalf of the entire World Boxing Association I give thanks for this delivery,” said Mendoza.

One of Mendoza’s main goals as president of the WBA has been that in every corner of the world you can practice sports and help fighters who come from countries where boxing has fewer opportunities for their talent to be seen.

The WBA feels very grateful for the recognition of its president and will continue working so that young people find in this sport a vehicle of improvement.
