A new recognition for boxing in Colombia. The Council of Cartagena has approved the draft Agreement by means of which October 28 is decreed as Boxing Day, as well as a tribute to the historic Antonio Cervantes ‘Kid Pambelé’ for his career in the sport.
This initiative, presented by Councilman Rafael Meza, aims to pay homage to all those sports glories that have brought great joy to our country, as well as encourage the practice of this discipline among the youngest. Likewise, in this draft Agreement, the civil merit order Antonio Cervantes ‘Kid Pambelé’ is created, in the grand official grade.
“This project seeks to encourage and stimulate the youth of Cartagena and Bolívar to continue practicing boxing, one of the sports that has given the country the most glory, with more than 43 world champions and many Olympic medals, and that is what We want many young people to continue giving these joys to the department, just as Kid Pambelé did,” said Meza.
With the approval of the project, the only thing missing is the sanction of Mayor William Dau to make it a reality. It should be noted that this is a great recognition for boxing in this region of the country, which has given it 20 world champions in which, in addition to Cervantes, Rodrigo Valdés, Tomás Molinares and the brothers Prudencio and Ricardo Cardona Cáceres stand out. / COLPRESS
