Mexican boxing is one of the most important for the sport. The presence of its warriors always guarantees entertainment and for the World Boxing Association (WBA) it is a matter of pride to be able to contribute to its growth and development hand in hand with great personalities such as Miguel Torruco, Directorate member and an asset for the pioneer organization.

Torruco came to the WBA with great ideas and has launched several of his projects as a key link to Mexico. He is the National Commissioner and a true boxing man who day by day seeks to improve and make the whole team better.

The year 2021 will be important for the WBA since it will celebrate its 100th anniversary as the oldest organization to sanction boxing and Torruco wants to face it in a great way and be at the forefront in such an important challenge.

“The Centennial of the World Boxing Association will be a very significant, relevant and above all symbolic celebration; not only for boxing but also for professional sport. The WBA in Mexico symbolizes hope and most of all motivation for Mexican boxers who have the illusion of becoming world champions,” Torruco said.

In addition, the leader spoke about a great project that he has in mind within the celebration of the centennial of the WBA and it is related to the youth of Mexico.

“I want to create a new tournament, El Campeón del Barrio”. A tournament in which the champions can win a new WBA belt as “Campeón del barrio AMB” and motivate young people to stay away from the streets and dedicate themselves to sports,” the Mexican said.

Torruco assured that he felt at home being part of the WBA and was happy to be able to put his projects into action. “The WBA is a second family, a place where you are really part of the organization,” he said.
