WBO President Criticizes WBA And WBC Decision To Create Extra Heavyweight Division

World Boxing Organization (WBO) president Paco Valcarcel said that the decision of the WBA and WBC to introduce a new weight class for heavyweights will do more harm than good.

Sometimes prescriptions are worse than the disease… Having 17 divisions in professional boxing is more than enough. The changes are not always good and many times trying to improve, we damage the image of boxing.

Recall, the President of the World Boxing Association (WBA) Gilberto Jesus Mendoza announced the creation of a new weight category of heavyweights - super cruiserweight.
