The WBA mourns the death of Eduardo Mena

The World Boxing Association (WBA) mourns the death of the great Panamanian coach, Eduardo Mena, last Saturday in his home country.

Mena was 70 years old and was struggling with several complications in recent days. Panamanian boxing and several of its figures have expressed their grief for the loss of such an important and beloved man for the discipline.

A native of Nombre de Dios, a town in Colon, Mena lived most of his life in the capital of Panama. However, he put a lot of effort into developing talent in his birthplace and working for the youth of Panama.

In the professional field, he worked alongside former world champion Liborio Solis, whom he accompanied in several of his best fights and who influenced his life.

Mena was an amateur boxer for more than 10 years and always emphasized that his inspiration was the great Ismael Laguna. He also worked as a promoter and knew Panamanian sport very well, that’s why he was well respected.

The WBA sends its condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Professor Mena.


Congratulations to Hubert Earle
