Callejas, who is also WBA Director of Integral Development Boxers Welfare was appointed on April 4, in a public ceremony and pledged to work for the development of boxing in the region. In addition, among his goals is to team up with amateur Boxing Federation of Puerto Rico to hold similar policies to the WBA’s.

“The idea is bring back the big promoters as before and to enforce our rules. If the weighing is announced at a specific time, it has to be done, because it is for the boxer’s benefit. In addition, I think we should join the Boxing Federation so that amateur and professional boxing go hand in hand, “said Callejas.
