The first day World Boxing Association (WBA) Convention had a very special moment. President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza was able to gather various boxing stars and gave a speech highlighting every positive aspect of boxing activity.

In the presence of the WBA Directors and before the regional organizations meeting, Mendoza shared stories with idols such as Roberto Duran, Antonio Esparragoza, David Griman, Jackie Nava, Alys Sanchez, Ricardo “Finito” Lopez, Fidel Bassa, Kid Pambelé Antonio Cervantes, and others.
The presentation aimed to tell their life experiences and the way boxing helped them to be more than athletes. The inspiring and lively stories of each one of them helped to show boxing from another perspective, as well as understand the WBA’s new vision at this moment.
Mendoza reaffirmed that the world leadership mindset needs to change and that the goal should be to offer to boxing something bigger than what they can receive from boxing, emphasizing, at the same time, that boxers are the main focus.
The WBA has a striking list of special guests at the convention. The association wants to pay tribute to these stars and include them to work for the changes boxing needs.
