WBO gives back in Argentina

The World Boxing Organization hosted this past Saturday the “WBO Kids Drugs Free” event in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the fifth consecutive year.  At the Boxing Federation of Argentina (FAB) Stadium, WBO President Francisco Valcárcel, Esq., and the Latino Region President for the WBO, Jorge Eugenio Molina, and the “Fundación Temas” organization gave 100 children backpacks and school supplies plus another group of 70 children all representing the pugilistic gyms, were given sportswear, such as bags, gloves, mitts, headgear, ropes and hand wraps.  Valcárcel  –  affectionately known as “Paco”  –  also presented WBO mini-flyweight female champion Yessica Bopp with her championship belt.  Bopp  –  who also holds the WBA belt  –  won the vacant WBO belt with a hard-fought decision over Ana Arrazola back in November 2009.  “I am excited to visit the great country of Argentina to help promote a drug free environment for kids and to present the WBO belt to a great champion,” said Valcárcel.
