World Champion Steve Collins Appointed President Of The Malta Boxing Commission
The Malta Boxing Commission today announced that World Champion Steve ‘Celtic Warrior’ Collins has been appointed as their new President.
Outgoing Interim President Mr Di Caro, who is a founding partner of the Malta Boxing Commission, then spoke briefly on the appointment,
“We, the entire board of the Malta Boxing Commission, are proud to announce that our new President is Mr Steve Collins.
Throughout his career Steve has been an exemplary ambassador for the sport, as well as possessing a superlative boxing pedigree.
As an amateur he won 26 Irish titles, as a pro he achieved the pinnacle of the sport, World Champion, not just the once but at two weights – Middleweight and Super Middleweight – as well as won both Irish and American National Championship honours.
Since retiring from the ring in 1997, Steve has remained very much “hands on” within the sport, not just in Malta but also the UK and of course his homeland of Ireland.
As such we, the board of the Malta Boxing Commission, are particularly pleased to welcome Steve to the organisation, as we believe that under his leadership we will finally achieve our aim of developing a professional boxing culture within the Republic of Malta.”
