“Thank you first responders”
February 19, 2021 -NABF ……..“Thank you first responders”
As President of the North American Boxing Federation I wish to reach out to our membership and dear friends and let you know that the North American Boxing Federation is well and we are positive about our future. Because of COVID we have misplaced our communication with one another. This past year has truly been dreadful and lonely for all of us. I have honestly missed being able to hold our annual Convention and seeing and enjoying our NABF Family.
We want all of you to know that we want to hold a convention during 2021, however this would only occur if the pandemic protocols will allow. We are putting plans in place wherein we can act quickly to hold a convention in a City that can be accessed quickly by all. This said we will not interfere with our World Boxing Councils’ anticipated Convention scheduled for Bangkok Thailand November 8 – 12, 2021. Therefore we are watching for cities to open up that would allow us to meet together again.
Josephine Ann Cole
Wife of former NABF, President Dickie Cole and mother of referee, Laurence Cole left this earth to join her husband. Wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to many. She will be missed.
Our new, NABF Super Bantamweight 122#, David Alan Picasso.
Victorious in Metepec, Mexico on April 9, 2022 by defeating David Reyes Cota by KO in the 4th rd.
A very happy Isaac Dogboe tweeted out his THANKS to the NABF when he won the NABF Featherweight Title.
Edging out Adam Lopez with a Majority Decision, the fight was aptly described as a 'slugfest'.
This was Dogboe's first fight under veteran trainer, Barry Hunter, as Dogboe moves up to Featherweight, taking home a well fought victory.

NABF Supports WBC
The WBC takes action for Peace
Mexico City- February 25th, 2022
With heavy hearts, the World Boxing Council (WBC) with the world witnesses the terrible outbreak of war, with an attack by Russian forces against the country of Ukraine. We witness this death and destruction with horror.
