WKF BOXING / BKFC – new World division

Daniel Z. HIRLAU

Dear sports friends,

On March 1, 2024, a new WKF Division Worldwide began work.

By athletes – for athletes!


The aim is not to compete with existing associations, but rather to complement them with significantly less bureaucracy and fewer annoying, outdated regulations.

In collaboration with all of our 140+ WKF country presidents with the new WKF department “BOXING/BKFC”, we are also internationally networked on 6 continents in over 140 countries.


The Hungarian expert Daniel Z. HIRLAU is our world president of the new division from March 1st, 2024.

From now on, ALL BOXERS – women and men – can use our free offer and apply for inclusion in the BOXING World rankings via the FIGHTER PROFILE. Free and non-bureaucratic!

The international WKF license applies to all boxers!

For PROFI boxers, a corresponding license and registration in BOXREC is mandatory! We would be happy to help you with this too.

The first amateur BOXING tournament will take place on April 26th/27th in Innsbruck, at the same time as the WKF Austrian Open in kickboxing.

All registrations should be sent directly to the BOXING head office, Mr. Hirlau,

by email: wkf-boxing@gmx.at

Anyone with a WKF license and a valid medical certificate is eligible to participate.

If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help you at any time.

contact mail:  Ő beszél magyarul / limba romana / English oder Deutsch

respectfully greetings

Daniel Z. HIRLAU
