Official statement from Sanctioning Bodies Presidents

Official statement from the presidents of the WBO (Francisco ‘Paco’ Valcárcel Esq), WBC (Mauricio Sulaimán), WBA (Gilberto Jesús Mendoza Jr.), and IBF (Daryl Peoples) regarding their meeting today in San Juan, PR.

Today’s meeting was very productive, especially in discussing a possible future agreement in search of a standardized title unification process. We have identified several areas where we agree and others where we will diligently continue to work on. As independent sanctioning bodies, we will always have our autonomy, but we are working in unison to grow and strengthen the positive image of boxing all around the world. Our unified goal is a safer, stronger, healthier, more fair and more just sport of boxing.
