For the first time in more than half a century, we are witnessing how the Presidents of North Korea and South Korea reached important agreements helping the peace of our planet, and the World Boxing Council wants to express to both countries the greatness of their actions.

The World Boxing Council has participated in a very special way in a couple of historical situations in relation to the peace movement through sports and especially through boxing.

Masamori Tokuyama, who was the super flyweight world champion of the WBC was born in North Korea with the name Chang Soo Hong and conquered the glory becoming the first and only world champion of North Korea. The important thing of that combat in the year 2000, was that he won the championship from In-Joo Cho of South Korea and in that event he presented the flag of Peace "One Korea".

In the women's boxing our great champion Ana Maria Torres defended the world bantamweight championship against Kwong Ok Kim, born and based in North Korea, who got the belt by a split decision. They fought on June 7, 2006 in North Korea.

Another Mexican, current world champion, Mariana "Barby" Juarez, fought a North Korean rival, Myung Ok Ryu but they changed blows in Shenyang, China. The winner was Ryu by KO in the tenth round and this happened on March 30, 2005.

Hopefully we will see union between the two Koreas which would serve as an example to all countries in conflict. And at the individual level this encourages us to consider the collective benefit as a top priority, selflessly leaving aside personal issues.
