Osvaldo Bisbal left us08 November 2021
It’s very sad to hear about the loss of Osvaldo. On behalf of the European Boxing Confederation, I would like to express my deepest condolences to his beloved family, to the Argentina Boxing Federation and to the American Boxing Confederation for the death of a sincere friend and a great manager of Olympic and professional boxing.
Osvaldo Bisbal was a talented international AIBA Referee/Judge in many editions of the Olympic Games, in the World Championships and in all the major international boxing competitions of AIBA.
After his long and prestigious career as a Referee/Judge, he dedicated his life to management having been had elected for many years Pesident of Argentinian Boxing Federation and to the Executive Committee member of AIBA and then as President of the American Continental Confederation. Moreover, he had been the Chair of the AIBA Referees / Judges Commission for many years and had managed numerous Referees / Judges Courses all over the world!
It will be difficult to replace his great and qualified experience, his calm analysis of the most difficult issues, his far-sighted vision of the development processes of Olympic boxing and his availability towards the needs of our sport worldwide.
We will miss you and we will never forget you! The real tomb of the dead is the heart of the living.
The memory of your wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. May you rest in peace.
