Shelly "Shelito's Way" Vincent:  Open Statement in regards to her relinquishing her WIBA Title Belt
September 6,  2014
     
   
   


 

(SEPT 6) With regards to the issue of being stripped of the WIBA Women's Super bantamweight title and my issue with Ryan Wissow [President of the WIBA], I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.

There is some confusion as to what happened and where we stand. Mr. Wissow made disparaging remarks [Social Network/Twitter] about women's boxing and specific women in this great sport. After I defended my peers and the sport of women's boxing, Mr. Wissow threatened to strip me of my title. [Shelly Vincent won the vacant WIBA super bantamweight title on May 17, 2013 at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island].

In lieu of this information, I voluntarily forfeited the WIBA championship. It has been well documented as to what Mr. Wissow said and who he said it about. I do not think there is any place in this sport or in general for such comments and attitude towards women and women's boxing.

I feel that representing an organization that condones and tolerates such actions and views would be unscrupulous in terms of women's boxing and women in general. I do not condemn the WIBA as an organization, just the individual in this case.

 

Going forward I will not represent the WIBA as long as Mr. Wissow is affiliated with this organization. It is time for women of this sport to be taken seriously and respected for the hard work and dedication that we invest in the sport we love. Opinions and disgusting comments such as those made by Mr. Wissow [Social Network/Twitter] only help to suppress the growth of the women's divisions.

I would like to thank those who have reached out and supported my decision. To my fellow female boxers, we must continue to work hard and elevate our sport to its highest possible level and strive for the respect that women's boxing deserves.

WBAN's Comment:  Apparently Vincent is not the only  female boxer taking a stand and speaking out on what they feel is not right in the world of women's boxing in what has been said on the social media, and they are openly protesting with spreading the word on the subject.

A new Facebook was just opened about this topic and these fighters, world champions, and the boxing community are airing their views:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/273251166217789/  The Group Topic is called:  "The Truth about the WIBA".  They are determined to expose what is happening in regards to this situation.
