By Robert Coster

News from Panama. Former WBA bantamweight and super-bantamweight champion Ricardo “Maestrito” Cordoba has just received his degree in law and political science. Cordoba, who fought from 2000 to 2012, had a stellar boxing career with a 39-3-2, 25 KO record.

WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza sent this message to Cordoba: “Champion, you represent the values of the WBA which strives to help boxers in their lives after boxing. You are the living proof that there is a life after boxing and that one can triumph in the ring and outside of it.”

  • Did the WBA help him out financially to achieve this or are they just milking it for a soundbyte? If the WBA helped him I’m wondering if it’s a full degree or an interim degree or a degree in recess?
    Seriously though , congratulations Mr C – you can be a role model to others.

  • Beautiful story. Congratulations.

    Being a fighter is not being a thug. It is being smart with the prize money, and other things. Go Ricardo Go.
