What a shame to learn that the President of the Amateur Boxing Federation, Ricardo Contreras, used the tragedy of a young man from Veracruz, who died after a boxing event, to try and further and deepen his antipathy and bitterness against the World Boxing Council.
Héctor Hernández Hernández aged 19, passed away yesterday after a boxing event. It is totally and absolutely false that it was a tournament organized by our organization. This is categorically incorrect. The details of this very unfortunate event in which a young man has lost his life will be released in a timely and accurate manner.
The entire World Boxing Council send our deepest condolences to the Hernández family, Ricardo`s many friends and the national boxing community at this so sad time.
