In the 55th World Boxing Council Convention at Baku, Azerbaijan, the Games and Amusements Board was awarded a very very prestigious commendation as the COMMISSION OF THE YEAR.
“This is a recognition of all the Board’s hard work and dedication to improving boxing in the Philippines”, says Chairman Abraham Mitra.
“The WBC is the oldest and most prestigious boxing organization in the world with so many countries/commission as members and it is a great great honor for GAB and the Philippines to receive this citation and award”, added Mitra.
“I think it’s the innovations we have instituted thru transparency, participation and dedication plus of course love for boxing that was recognized”, Mitra said.
In an earlier executive meeting with the WBC Board of Governors, the GAB-DOH medical licensing assistance program was well applauded when it was presented by Chairman Mitra. President Mauricio Sulaiman of WBC has asked for a copy of the MOA and Internal Rules and urged other more developed countries to follow the Philippine example.
