President, Executive Committee and all the World Boxing Association family mourns the death of Mr. Yang Sup Shim, who was member of the WBA Directorate for many years.
Mr. Shim, who died on June 6, was a WBA Pan Asian regional Vice President and Director General of the late WBA PABA organization.
Under his guidance, many great PABA champions went onto becoming great world champions…Danny Green and Anthony Mundine (Australia), Nikolay Valuev (Russia), Lakva Sim (Mongolia), Chris John (Indonesia), Poonsawat Kratingdaengym (Thailand) just to mention a few.
For this reason, the WBA declared two days of mourning and all the WBA send Mr. Shim’s family its words of sympathy and deepest condolences. RIP Mr Shim.
