We in the International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO) mourn the passing of lost members who have played a major role in making the IBRO a success. Their enthusiastic and unselfish dedication and participation is greatly appreciated. The world of boxing is a much emptier place without them. Let’s not forget them!
