“You will see an excellent quality event”: José Luis Vellón, boxing ITD

José Luis Vellón, International Technical Delegate (ITD) of boxing, visited this Thursday the Sports Center of the Instituto Tecnológico Centroamericano (ITCA), in Santa Tecla.

This venue will be the boxing venue for the San Salvador 2023 Games, where the best boxers in the region will give their all to win medals for their countries.

The Puerto Rican delegate was accompanied during his visit by personnel from the Infrastructure, Sports, and Press areas of the Organizing Committee of the San Salvador 2023 Games (COSSAN2023), with whom he resolved doubts and adjusted final details for the start of the competitions.

Vellón expressed his satisfaction with the selected venue and pledged that this sport will have everything it needs to shine in the San Salvador 2023 Games. 

“It meets the minimum requirements for the event to be held here. It is up to COSSAN2023 and us to reinforce the work and to have everything necessary in terms of organization and structure for the event to take place,” commented the delegate. 

The Puerto Rican also highlighted the level of boxing to be seen, in addition to the quality of fighters that will be presented in the Salvadoran capital. 

“Boxing is a sport of exceptional quality. In this event, there are countries that are boxing powers such as Cuba, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Colombia, or Puerto Rico. Of the countries in the Americas, the strength in boxing is in these countries, so you will see an event of excellent quality,” commented Vellon. 

Finally, the former Olympic athlete highlighted the work done by the Organizing Committee. “It has been good; despite the short time they have had for the organization and structuring of the event. From us in the boxing discipline, we will do everything to make it a success,” he said.
