Last August 3rd, it was 100 years since the inauguration of the Spanish Boxing Federation named as such. Twelve men’s world champions and two champions, fifty-eight European champions and seven European champions, plus hundreds of champions from Spain have had the Federation to date.

It is surprising that the current Federation has not even issued a statement commenting on this fantastic celebration. a pity

We, for our part in the Espabox Guide, have already reviewed the creation of our Federation and wrote about the birth of our sport.

The Federation was originally called the Spanish Defense Sports Federation and included the disciplines of wrestling, fencing and boxing. On August 3, 1922, the Spanish Federation of Defense Sports was renamed the Spanish Boxing Federation, with its residence in Barcelona.

The Board of Directors was composed of: President, Lorenzo Antonio Ramonet. Vice President, José Clos. Secretary, Ramón Larruy. Treasurer, Ignacio Amat. Accountant, Jaime Piera. Vocals, Masip, Casanovas, Cervera, Comas and López.

And meeting the new Spanish Federation, on September 1, among other agreements they decide to ratify the name of the new Federation after the meeting held last Wednesday the 29th in the premises of the “Barcelona Boxing Club”.

Thus it was formally called the Spanish Boxing Federation.
