The venue for Saturday’s event in the Dominican Republic will be disinfected this Thursday

As part of the security precautions for this May 30th boxing program in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, the disinfection of the Carlos 'Teo' Cruz Coliseum has been programed for Thursday, as one of the most important measures to ensure the health and well-being of all those who will be working that evening.

The program will have two regional World Boxing Association (WBA) belts at stake and will follow the health protocol issued a couple of weeks ago by the pioneer organization's Medical Committee.

Shuan Boxing Promotion representatives assured they are working with local authorities and have already coordinated the disinfection of the premises. The product to be used is Fifth Generation Ammonium Quaternary; disinfection booths will also be available, as well as temperature taking for all personnel entering the place that day. Evidently, everyone will be tested for Covid-19 during this week.

The WBA has been monitoring closely everything that is going on around the event and has been providing support, advice, and sending out safety kits with important items for the fighters, trainers and all the professionals who will be working on the boxing card.

It is great news for the boxing world to know that events with titles at stake are coming back and that they are done in the right way, while respecting local and world authorities to safeguard the health of all involved.
