The Board of Directors votes in favor of “Fair Boxing” being mandatory.

The World Boxing Association (WBA) Board of Directors voted in favor of the “Fair Boxing” program being implemented in a compulsory way in the regional and world fighting championships for the top 15 rankings of the organization.

During the second shift of the WBA Board Meeting, they agreed by voting that boxers for this type of fights should be enrolled in the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) program. The motion was proposed by the President of the WBA, Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, as a way to achieve a fairer sport.

Mendoza invited all organizations that have not joined to work together with VADA, and do it now to the boxing’s benefit. The executive explained that being registered in the association’s program does not mean that fighters will be tested for each fight, but tests will be done randomly as it is done normally by VADA.

He also explained that if it is necessary, promoters can request tests before the fights and take charge of the costs arising.

After the motion was approved, the Board left the responsibility of creating a committee to manage and carry out the program on Mendoza’s behalf.
