WBO: Referee Joe Cortez as NABO advisor
Hall of Famer referee, Joe Cortez, one of the most recognized referees in boxing, joined the World Boxing Organization (WBO) as the new Advisor for the North American Boxing Organization (NABO) Chairman of the Board, Richard De Cuir.
The WBO president, Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel, welcomed today the retired boxing official to this entity and praised the capabilities of Cortez.
“We are extremely proud to have Joe Cortez, a great professional and a great person, here with the family of the NABO and WBO. We know that his vast experience will help us in this organization”, Valcarcel said. “Welcome to the WBO family Joe Cortez”.
Born in New York to Puerto Rican parents, Cortez was a boxer, winning the Golden Gloves several years in the amateurs. Then accumulated a record of 18-1 as a professional before retiring at age of 24. Cortez began as a referee in the late 70s and in his career as the third man in the ring worked in over 170 world title bouts, always with his famous words “Fair but firm”.
For his great work as a referee Cortez was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011, along that year with former world champions Mike Tyson, Julio Cesar Chavez and Kostya Tszyu.
