There was great excitement from WBF members around the world when we announced our fourth Convention to be held in Oberhausen in Germany from the 7th to 10th November.

I have always been extremely proud that the World Boxing Federation’s family who attend our conventions are clearly the most jovial and wonderful group of people I have ever met, and my level of excitement heightened after receiving several calls from our team members already inquiring about the Convention.

At WBF conventions, everyone knows everyone, there is tremendous fun and laughter, and time to meet and see both new and old friends from all over the world. Of course somewhere between all the festivities is a bit of boxing, perhaps a few title fights, some awards given out, gala dinners and more - much more.

The World Boxing Federation (WBF) embraces everyone into the family, irrespective of race, color, religion and sex. We are, and always will be a united team, each member looking out for, and after the next. The WBF is truly my second family and one of which I am extremely proud and appreciative.

At the last convention in Slovenia, and after almost no sleep for three days, I thought I needed a bit of ‘me’ time, and I sneaked out of a late dinner to go for a swim in the hot water baths where I hoped no-one would find me or at least for 30 quiet minutes.

Little did I know that within 3 minutes, the hot water baths were full to capacity with WBF members as jovial as ever and I realized at that moment how lucky the WBF is to have the characters and personalities it does.

While it may be an extremely busy three days and three nights for our executive members working around the clock, it is for me personally one of the best things of the WBF - getting everyone together, eating, laughing, smiling, talking and even perhaps a bit of drinking...

It may be 7 months away but the excitement has certainly begun! Book early and join us in what will undoubtedly be the three best days and nights of your year.

See you in Oberhausen in November.

Until next time, keep punching.

Howard Goldberg

PRESIDENT: World Boxing Federation
