In a constructive meeting that took place last Friday (Feb 8) at AA BBQ Guadalupe in the Queen City of the South, Cebu City, the professional boxing ring officials of central Visayas (PBO-CV) elected its new leadership for year 2019.

The 23-member group, formed by boxing ring officials of the provinces of Cebu, Leyte, Bohol, Naval and Siquijor elected international boxing judge Arnie Najera of Cebu as its new president.

Najera takes the helm willing to work together with his vice president judge Edward Ligas, who was PBO-CV president for last term.

Referee Nic Banal will continue as secretary of the organization. Banal, a former fighter, has been an enthusiastic, active member of the organization, creating its official logo. Judge Garfiel Olalo is the treasurer, and judge William Maņus, a Cebu attorney, will perform the duties of the group's auditor.

"Thank you all for the trust. Here's hope that we can move all the agenda that we have right now for the benefit of the group and all its members in Central Visayas! Salamat po," said Najera after being elected.

Part of the new leadership's agenda include securing an accident insurance for the PBO-CV members as well as securing proper accommodation for ring officials when they travel, among other points.

Also in attendance during the positive, brotherly reunion were experienced referees Antonio "Tony" Pesons and Teddy Alivio; as well as ring doctors Dr. Jose Unabia and Dr. Rene Bonsubre.
