The GREAT Prof Victor Cota wins the greatest prize
Victor Cota, who’s The Genius of the World Boxing Council, has been presented with a so well deserved lifetime Achievement Award at it’s fifty seventh annual Convention in Cancun.
Always immaculately attired, genial, kind and formidably knowledgeable, eighty five year old Don Victor is the only person left, who attended the inauguration of the World Boxing Council, at the Prada Alffer Hotel on 14th of February 1963. The Hotel didn’t survive the massive 1985 Earthquake. But Don Victor remains a tour de force.
For forty years he’s been the Communications Director, Historian and Statistics Expert at the WBC. A prodigiously gifted scribe/story teller, Don Victor is also a patient and inspirational teacher, who’s knowledge of Boxing is second to none. If you want to significantly improve your own boxing IQ, he can set you on the path with some fiendishly difficult homework questions.
Winner of numerous awards, a member of the Canastota International Hall of Fame, honored by the Mexican Senate with the Dr Jose Sulaiman Chagnon Award, Don Victor’s first love is his Family.
His daughter Claudia, his grandchildren Fernanda and Alejandro and his son in law Ricardo. They were there to share this distinction of triumph and joy, presented to the journalists’ Journalist.
