After spending three working days in Tirana, Albania where Ylli Ndroqi was inducted as the ‘Honarary’ President of the WBFed, the executive members who were in attendance, Howard Goldberg, Toni Tiberi, Ron Scalf, Jean Marcel Nartz and Olaf Schroeder have been hard at work following up on all the exciting policies and structures for 2010 initiated at this meeting in Tirana.

The first ever convention is due to be held in Tirana, Albania tentatively on 22, 23 and 24 April – information in this regard will be posted on our website in the next few days.

Having been to several conventions over the years, I am convinced that while day to day business needs to be discussed at such an event, more important is the meeting of boxing officials, administrators, managers, promoters, trainers and boxers, where old and new stories can be shared among friends.  It is extremely important to meet up with old mates, share a glass of wine, have a laugh and simply talk boxing!

Vice President Ron Scalf has been very busy reigniting the WBFed flame in the US, while Olaf Schroeder is hugely busy with the European front.  In Africa, WBFed fights will take place in South Africa in March and April, while countries such as Botswana, Namibia and Ghana will be staging WBFed title fights for the first time ever – such is the interest and demand in the new World Boxing Federation.

Our aim for 2010 is no different from last year.  We want world class world champions, excellent match-ups, and we want to provide huge opportunities for world rated fighters who are not afforded the opportunities elsewhere.

I wish everyone a safe, successful and happy 2010. 

Until next time, keep boxing.

Howard Goldberg
