The fight against doping is one of the most important issues for the WBA, and therefore, we’ll talk about its consequences and the importance of rigorous samples collection before and after the fights.
Medical staff will also discuss safety and will seek new ways to be better in that regard. The event will start at 8 am and end at 1 pm.
