Roy Van Putten passes

WBC Vice President Roy Van Putten passed away last night in Aruba. Van Putten joined the WBC in 1985. He was the creator of the Continental Americas championships and the creator and leader of the Caribbean Boxing Federation. “Van Putten was one of the best boxing commissioners that the WBC President has known,” said WBC President Jose Sulaiman. “He made a cathedral of the loyalty, the commitment, the passion and the love for the boxing sport and for human rights and justice; we will always remember him.” The WBC has declared a day of world mourning.
