New regional director of the World Boxing Association

It is announced that Alfredo Polanco Alvarez has been appointed as Regional Director for North America of the World Boxing Association.

Alfredo is an entrepeneur from Baja California Sur who has held various positions in professional boxing as a referee and judge in several national championship fights in Mexico and the world.

Giberto de Jesús Mendoza, President of the WBA, has granted this designation and is the first Mexican to obtain it.

Alfredo Polanco Alvarez is a member of one of the best known families in Comondú and La Paz.

The World Boxing Association (WBA), formerly known as the National Boxing Association (NBA), is the oldest and one of four major organizations which sanction professional boxing bouts, alongside the World Boxing Council (WBC), International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organization (WBO).

The WBA awards its world championship title at the professional level. Founded in the United States in 1921 by 13 state representatives as the NBA, in 1962 it changed its name in recognition of boxing's growing popularity worldwide and began to gain other nations as members.
