In the 55th World Boxing Council Convention in Baku, Azerbaijan the Games and Amusements Board was awarded a very very prestigious commendation: THE WBC BOXING COMMISSION OF THE YEAR.
"This is a recognition of the board's hard work and dedication to improving boxing in the Philippines," says chairman Abraham Mitra.
"The WBC is the oldest and most prestigious boxing organization in the world, with so many countries/commissions as members, and it is a great great honor for GAB and the Philippines to receive this citation and award," added Mitra.
"I think it’s the innovations we have instituted thru transparency, participation and dedication, plus, of course, love for boxing that was recognized," Mitra said.
In an earlier executive meeting with the WBC board of governors, the GAB-DOH medical licensing assistance program was well applauded when it was presented by Chairman Mitra.
President Mauricio Sulaiman of WBC asked for a copy of the MOA and internal rules and urged other more developed countries to follow the Philippine example.
Present to witness the receipt of the award were former GAB chairman Ramon Guanzon, WBC medical commission vice chairman Dr. Nasser Cruz, Philippines Premier Promoters Johnny Elorde and Liza Elorde, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, WBC supreme council members, Vice Presidents, board of governors and managers/promoters from all over the world.
