Another year has flown by and we can reflect on a good 12 months for the World Boxing Federation with an increase in the number of fights from 2010, which will be highlighted in a separate feature story on this website by year's end. We will be setting the bar even higher for next year as we continue our rapid growth worldwide. At the same, we will continue to be a transparent and open sanctioning body with integrity and honesty being the basis for all that we do.

I would like to at this point pay tribute to my Vice President Jean Marcel Nartz for his hard work and wisdom as well as to everyone on the WBF's management team, because the World Boxing Federation is a team effort that without the passion and dedication of every single panel member would not be possible. This, of course, includes our legal, medical, media and marketing personnel who add much value to our team. 

To all the Coordinators and Representatives who work so diligently in not only getting fights, but who supervise them with such professionalism and pride, my thanks to you fellows. A special word of gratitude to our wonderful secretary, Diana Spasova, who adds beauty and class to our team, and who is as efficient as one can find.

I would like to wish everyone, our champions, promoters, fighters, trainers, staff, readers etc. a wonderful holiday, a Merry Christmas and a fruitful and successful 2012.

Until next time, keep boxing.

Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
