WBA President Mendoza turns 71

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Happy Birthday to WBA President Gilberto Mendoza, who turns 71 today. Mendoza was born on March 30, 1943 in Barquisimeto in the state of Lara, Venezuela. He has been the WBA’s president since 1982, and has consistently worked for the welfare and growth of boxing in all areas. One of his greatest achievements has been the creation of the “KO to Drugs” program, which now became a global campaign.
