By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBA Executive Vice President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza Jr. has been hospitalized in Panama after experiencing a mild heart attack. “He has a great heart,” said Dr. Temistocles Diaz, who added that Mendoza is stable and recovering. Sources say Mendoza Jr. will be out of action resting for at least the next 15 days. He is known for his boxing exhibitions with Oscar de la Hoya, Evander Holyfield, Tito Trinidad and John Ruiz during the WBA’s KO to Drugs Festivals. “I thank God I’m alive, my family for support, and the boxing community in general for letting me be part of them. From all experiences we can learn something,” Mendoza Jr. said.
