The WBU’s latest appointment, Chris Glover, gave his take on his plans for the World Boxing Union.

“Firstly I’d like to thank Don for giving me the opportunity to help bring the World Boxing Union back to what it once was.

“I grew up watching the likes of Ricky Hatton and Michael Gomez and I want the fighters that are around today to be in the type of contests similar to what Hatton and Gomez were with the WBU titles being at stake.

“Not everybody is going to be an International Champion never mind a World Champion. We want to help give fighters opportunities they may never have had beforehand and at a cost that promoters can afford.

“We’re open to working with all promoters that are licensed by correct authorities such as the British Boxing Board of Control. Safety and legitimacy comes first in our eyes and the BBBofC have the best medical and authority practices in the world.”

The World Boxing Union will aim to be putting on over ten contests inside the next year in the UK alone, with World Youth, International, European, Intercontinental and World honours all up for grabs. Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting news from the World Boxing Union!
