WBC, IBF and WBA Presidents To Meet in Mexico

By Miguel Rivera, notifight.com

Contrary to hasty reports, three sanctioning body presidents are going to meet from June 22-23 in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico. This congregation had been cooking for days, but with much discretion and secrecy. There is still no official press release to the boxing world.

So far, we understand that this summit will be attended by the president of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Mauricio Sulaiman, President of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Gilberto Mendoza and the IBF president Daryl Peoples.

The president of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, is not able to attend due to prior personal commitments.
