The Latin Promoter of the Year was Felix “Tuto” Zabala, Jr. of All Star Boxing, Inc. “The New Generation.” Zabala Jr received this award for the sixth year in a row. The WBO Latin Boxer of the Year Award was won by undefeated hot prospect Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr., son of the three times World Champion and living legend Wilfredo Vazquez and the Telemundo Network was named Network of the Year. President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel and Ratings Chairman Luis Perez handed the awards during the ceremony. More awards will follow during the last two days of the Convention.
