WBF appoints Gottlieb

At the recently held World Boxing Federation (WBF) convention in Albania, the organization unanimously elected Butch Gottlieb, from the USA, as their commissioner of Women’s Boxing. Butch’s goals are very simple and that is to have credible champions in credible fights: “I believe that titles and title shots must be earned and not handed out just to fill a vacant title,” says Gottlieb, who also owns/operates the website BoxinginLasVegas.com. “I want to see more girls from the USA going to Europe to fight for and to defend titles and not have to worry about getting the short end of the scoring because the opponent is the promoter’s fighter. A level playing field is all the girls ask for, and they deserve just that. I will strive to see that happens.”
