The WBC Remote Judging System is a success

Promociones ZANFER has implemented an exemplary administrative and medical protocol which has been executed with excellency.

On June 27, WBC super featherweight champion Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt (37-1-0, 33 KOs) fought Eleazar “Tronco” Valenzuela (21-13-4, 16 KOs) in an all-Mexican non-title bout. Long-reigning WBC super featherweight champion 'El Alacran' Berchelt won by sixth round stoppage, but was leading 60-53 onn the scorecards following a first round knockdown.

With safety as the highest priority for everyone involved in boxing to hold events without public in attendance, and being a major factor to limit the number of persons participating in the event, the WBC has adjusted the “WBC Remote Judging System”, which has been used for the last two years to evaluate and train ring officials, into a solution to use this program in boxing events during the current conditions.

Yesterdays event in Mexico City was only the second event in which judges officiated remotely, off site , having three judges scoring from the TV studio and three more scoring from home in the United States. All six scorecards were official.

The event “Volvemos con Punch” was aired by Television Azteca in Mexico, ESPN in the USA and ESPN knockout all through central and South America.
