The World Boxing Association (WBA) deeply regrets the death of Diogenes Cardenas, president of the Nicaraguan Boxing Federation.

Cárdenas was a man who loved boxing and worked for the Nicaraguan fighters. He won the appreciation of all national associations, who had voted for him in 2018 for a third consecutive term as president of the organization in the Central American country. The period for which he was re-elected would end in 2022.

Nicaraguan and global boxing is mourning the loss of a family member. The loss of Cárdenas strikes a blow to boxing, especially to his country, in whose successes he had been very much responsible.

The WBA prays for the soul of Cárdenas and for the serenity and resignation of his family in this difficult time.
