The WBC, WBO and IBF join the sports world in an urgent plea to cease fire and end the war in Ukraine, with the invasion from Russia.
Effective today, our organizations will not certify any championship fights involving boxers from Russia and Belarus. We will constantly monitor ongoing developments, hoping this situation is resolved soon, to reestablish normal life and activity.
The boxing world is united for peace, the sports world is united for peace and reject any form of war. Innocent lives are being lost and soldiers are dying from Ukraine and Russia.
May God help to bring peace to our world.
