WBO gets Japan nod

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Feb. 18, 2013 at 12:01am
Japan has officially recognized the World Boxing Organization, alongside the World Boxing Council and the World Boxing Association.

The recognition comes after a determined effort by the WBO to gain the confidence of the Japan Boxing Commission.

WBO president Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel, who is in Japan along with the head of the WBO Asia-Pacific region Leon Panoncillo, thanked businessman-sportsman Akihiko Honda, as well as promoter Felix “Tutico” Zabala for their hard work over the past three years to ultimately gain the recognition in Japan. Honda owns Teiken Promotions and the famous Teiken Gym.

Valcarcel, together with the JBC, will officially announce the entrance of the WBO to the Japanese boxing circuit at a news conference at the Tokyo Dome Hotel, 2 p.m. on Monday.

Also in the delegation of Valcarcel is WBO Ratings Chairman Luis Perez.

”I’m very happy and delighted to have been able to get our organization into such a great country. This is history in the making,” Valcarcel said.

The Philippines has played a prominent role in the WBO and currently has three world champions, led by super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire, light flyweight champion Donnie Nietes and flyweight champion Brian Viloria, who is also holder of the WBA belt after scoring a spectacular 10th-round TKO over Mexico’s Hernan Marquez last November.
