Ex-World Champ Terri Moss Joins Restructured WBF America
Beginning the new year on a positive note, the World Boxing Federation (WBF) announced a complete re-structuring of its business in America, with a few new faces joining the team and some well-established staff members being promoted, that will hopefully lead into an exciting future.
Sergio Sotelo, an accomplished member of the WBF since 2010, will now assume a new position as Chairman for North & Central America. Sotelo has done an outstanding job for the WBF, especially in Mexico, and has already been hard at work at his new post.
He has appointed Raul Wilhelmy, current President of the Mexicali State Commission and a highly experienced and respected administrator for many years, as the new regional representative for Mexico. ,Wilhelmy, a lawyer by trade, is expected to contribute value and expertise to the WBF going forward.
Former female world champion, Terri ‘The Boss’ Moss has been appointed as the new WBF Women’s Boxing Chairman with immediate effect. Terri, who resides in Georgia, USA, is a boxing person through and through, and her experience in the ring as well as outside in various positions should have her in good stead with the WBF as the year progresses.
Marcelo Ramia, who has been doing excellent work for the WBF as a Regional Representative in Brazil, will now assume responsibility for the entire South America as Chairman for that jurisdiction and is already underway negotiating world title defenses for Brazil’s Isaac Rodrigues (middleweight) and Colombia’s Alexander Brand (supermiddleweight).
WBF President Howard Goldberg said: “I am delighted with the promotion of Sergio and Marcelo as well as the introduction of Terri and Raul. It sure makes me confident that they will bring their usual professionalism and expertise to boxing in their regions, and look forward to our WBF moving ahead at an accelerating pace in North and South America and in our women’s boxing department, too, of course.”
