25th WBO Convention kicks off


By David Finger

The 25th annual WBO Convention kicked off last night as guest prepared for one of the most exciting WBO conventions ever. Early participants took part in the annual golf tournament yesterday morning, followed with a calypso party at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where the convention will be held all week. Dozens of boxing celebrities arrived early to celebrate the event, and many observers believe that this convention may go down as the most successful and well attended in the organization’s history. The events continue this morning with General Assembly (featuring the Executive Committee Opening Ceremony Quorum, the Invocation, the Approval of Previous Proceedings, and the President’s and Treasurer’s Reports) due to kick off at 8AM. Elections for the Executive Committee will follow afterwards at 10AM, followed by the Judges Meetings at 11AM.
