By David Finger

The 26th annual WBO Congress kicked off tonight in Budapest, Hungary as WBO Vice President Istvan “Koko” Kovacs welcomed boxing insiders to the Hungarian capital. After the 16th annual golf tournament kicked off in the morning, a welcome cocktail held at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Danube allowed boxing insiders to discuss some of the major developments in the sport.

The evening concluded at the Kárpátia Restaurant where a Latin Guitar show coupled with Hungarian cuisine delighted guests. The convention kicks off tomorrow at 8AM with the opening ceremonies at the Intercontinental Hotel.
