The World Boxing Federation (WBF) staged its 5th world Convention in Cape Town South Africa from 22-26 March this year.

It proved to be a huge success enjoyed by one and all. Together with the boxers and trainers almost 100 delegates were involved in the Convention.

Delegates from Hungary, Germany, England, Morocco, Kuwait, Iran, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Angola, DRC, Namibia were in attendance.

Videos from Claressa Shields and top promoter Dennis Hobson were played at the opening to express their apology in not being able to attend although both committed to coming to Africa later in the year.

The seminars were nothing short of brilliant and spectacular.

WBF President Howard Goldberg delivered a testing seminar for the referees and judges where many of the delegates said that they learnt more in 2 hours than they had in 10 years with BSA.

Other seminars included a cornerman seminar with the very experienced trainer Gert Strydom, a nutrition seminar by the highly respected Rael Koping and a very interesting medical seminar by Dr Louwrens Erasmus.

Of course there was the fun side with a trip up one of the seven wonders of the world - Table mountain. An exclusive cable car assigned only to WBF delegates took everyone 1000 metres up to enjoy an incredible experience.

Delegates went to the Waterfront, took drives up Chapman’s peak and all had a wonderful time.

Friday night saw the boxing event and possibly an early contender for the WBF fight of the year between Wassim Chilean and Lybon Ntshani - an absolute war.

Saturday evening saw the awards dinner and of course Africa music took over with Siya Vabaza leading the chorus.

Sunday saw the departure of most of the delegates and closed a superb, exciting and informative convention.
