WBA held its second course for judges and referees with more than a hundred people

The World Boxing Association (WBA) continues to expand its WBA Academy and on Saturday held for the second time the course for judges and referees 'How to evaluate a round and the refereeing procedure', this time with simultaneous translation Spanish-English. And once again, the course was sold out and had the novelty that it was given with.

The webinars with the best specialists have been one of the academy's projects and there has been a great response from the public. On the first date, a couple of weeks ago, many users had been left without the possibility of doing the course, but on this second occasion the intention was that those who could not register had the opportunity to do so.

World-class judges and referees Luis Pabón, Roberto Torres, Raúl Cáiz Jr., Octavio Rodríguez and Gustavo Padilla were in charge of the webinar for over 100 people who logged on. The dynamic format of the webinar, as well as the possibility of participation by those attending have been the two key success factors of this initiative.

The WBA will continue to run webinars, such as the Medical Committee held a week ago, and each time they will be extended to different areas of interest with the intention of contributing to the training of boxing personnel in all areas.
