Any WBC seminar has from now on got to be approved by its President and the Ring Officials Committee.
Ring Officials Chairman Hubert Minn, stressed the great importance of training and vigilance, and safeguarding the boxers as there have been five ring fatalities this year.
Two hundred ring Officials participated in the Seminar at the World Boxing Council’s fifty seventh Convention, at the Grand Oasis Hotel in Cancun.
Hubert, who won WBC Committee Chairman of the Year for his excellent and dedicated work, said ring Officials have a unique responsibility, as they hold the lives of the boxers in their hands. He explained: “The most important thing about seminars is that the WBC trains them properly, which we do. All trainers for seminars need to be WBC certified.
‘Bad luck is a lack of preparation. Good luck is when good preparation meets opportunity.’’
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said; “We want uniformity. When there is a WBC event it must be to the highest standard. The WBC welcomes every ring official that wants to be part of our family.”
