One of my dislikes, which Iíve learnt to live with though, is reporters without morals and who write inaccurately and without doing some work to get the true facts, simply in order to sell a story. 

Perhaps it is me who should feel less sensitive to reporters like these, but I have always been one to tell it as it is, with the facts and with honesty.

So when I read an inaccurate report about the WBF I took a deep breath and looked deeper for the true facts. Without giving details of this reporterís drivel, thus not giving it the time of day, I analyzed our organization to see where we are today and where we are going compared to when we restarted the World Boxing Federation.

By March next year, most menís world titles will be filled. Not too shabby I would say, and also most of the champions will be world class. Equally important is the huge growth we have had in our womenís champions with several of our champions being the # 1 on boxrec. Equally not shabby I would add.

Of course there is room for improvement and we continue to reflect on the way we work, what we do right and where we can do better. As President I am extremely proud to head a team of fantastic people who give their all to build the World Boxing Federation.

We are moving upwards rapidly but we will never lose sight of who we are, and our love for boxing.

Until next time, keep boxing.

Howard Goldberg
