WBC Prez: GGG Conquered The Hearts of Mexico, I Was Humbled

By Mauricio Sulaiman
 
WBC middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin conquered the hearts of Mexico as he visited to make a statement. GGG was honored as a hero of Mexico during the NFL halftime show for the Patriots vs. Raiders game at Aztec Stadium.
 
He then visited, in the company of Mexico City Minister of Health, Dr. Armando Ahued, the Moctezuma Children's hospital and brought toys and lots of love to those little champions battling cancer. He also received the Distinguished Visitor Citation and Key to the City from Mexico City Governor Miguel Angel Mancera.

I was humbled by GGG's greatness as a human being. He is the role model of what a WBC champion must represent, and is an example to all on how to live a life with dedication, passion, gratitude, and loyalty - a family man making the lives of others better.

I am proud to have GGG as a WBC champion and ambassador.

AIBA has finally taken a step in the right direction and dismissed former President Wu. Let's all hope that amateur boxing will see its rebirth with a new administration which must have amateur boxing and its development as its only intention, with the safety of the fighters as a priority, and not the commercial and financial interests that AIBA has had during Wu's presidency, which brought amateur boxing to its lowest level ever.

The WBC offers absolute support to AIBA and will participate in any form or manner through the WBC Amateur committee, if needed.
 
WBC Amateur continues with great results. In Mexico, it has as a supporter "Academias CONADE," which is a national program to find talented athletes to offer them an opportunity to be drafted and receive a scholarship at the CNAR. There will be a sensational tournament in Chicago at the end of this month, and there are multiple events scheduled in different countries. Amateur boxing is the basis of our sport, and we must protect its integrity and development.
 
Last week was spectacular for Mexico in sports, and to the WBC structure.

We went to the Senate of Mexico. The WBC administered the "BoxVal" Program accompanied by the Pope Francis foundation "Scholas Ocurrentes," to inaugurate an exhibition of paintings from the kids of Jojutla, Morelos, who are victims of the earthquake and through ScholasArts, were able to express their trauma and find relief.

Beyond Sport held its first event in Mexico with great success. Founder and president Nick Keller and his sensational staff held a three-day program which included the community action and day of presentations, awarded the first Beyond Sport Mexico Award, and laid the foundations of the new era of social responsibility through sports in Mexico.

[QUOTE=stealthradon;18330040]When GGG turned pro he was already 24-25. That means he stopped growing at that point. I don't know if you know the Kazakh boxing scene, but it wasn't great around the 2000's. That's why GGG's first fight was in…
