As the world starts the process of vaccinations against this dreaded virus, it is heartwarming and welcoming to see the world starting to get back to some kind of normal.

Whether normal as we knew it will ever be the same, at least we have a start in the process. It was indeed great to witness the fans back at the English football matches albeit in limited numbers.

We all look forward to the day when boxing fans are permitted to attend fights around the world at a larger scale, and add the incredible atmosphere needed in our sport.

We are looking forward to one of the most anticipated woman fights of the year where we share titles with the WBC insofar as the bout goes.

World middleweight champion Ema Kozin (20-0) vs. world super welterweight champion Noni Tenge (20-1).

Youth vs. experience. Power vs. finesse. It all adds up to a very evenly matched fight which could go either way.

I was extremely sad to hear of the passing of a new friend of mine Rodney Cruz Hunt. Rodney attended our convention in Germany, and he and I became close friends. We spoke often about the WBF and he was instrumental in putting up a few of our titles in Mexico.

He contracted the Corona Virus and called me to let me know that he was recovering slowly. Sadly he succumbed to the virus and passed away at far too young an age.

We convey our condolences to his family and friends and he certainly will be sorely missed by many.

Until next time, keep punching.

Howard Goldberg
