The World Boxing Association, through its Championships Committee, approved the project of its WBA Europe regional office to promote the “WBA Continental Europe” belt, which will launch a new era of the pioneer organization in the Old Continent.
The proposal, presented by the director of WBA Europe, Mariana Borisova, will offer new opportunities to the fighters who make life in that continent, also giving a new dimension to the body in the strategic region.
“I am confident that with the approval of this new project, the WBA will be stronger and more powerful in Europe,” Borisova assured.
The “WBA Continental Europe” belt confirms the importance of the region in the strategic objectives of the World Boxing Association. It is also a recognition by the WBA of the consistent and extraordinary work done by its regional office.
“WBA Europe has been doing a tremendous job, thanks to which WBA’s growth in the region has been remarkable. Now we aspire to go to another level, opening this new opportunity to European boxers within our organization,” said WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza.
“The “WBA Continental Europe” belt project is a reality and has the full recognition of our organization. I am sure that with the impetus of Mariana Borisova and her entire team, this project will achieve its objectives, for the benefit of boxing and the many talents that are emerging in the region today. We are very excited about this new challenge that is opening up before us,” she added.
Borisova indicated that this new era of the WBA in Europe will begin in September, with the organization of bouts of the highest standard and top quality boxers.
WBA Europe has had a tremendous penetration in its area of influence and its objective is to continue growing, giving opportunities and prestige to qualified fighters and champions in the region.
