May 2, 2021

It is with great regret I have heard of the death of the Vice President of the National Olympic Committee and Minister of Youth and Sports of the Azerbaijan Republic Azad Rahimov , who was a great leader and a great friend of the sport of kickboxing.

I had the pleasure to meet him last year to develop the sport in Azerbaijan (1st on the right in the picture below).

Our most sincere and deepest condolences go to his family, his friends and the entire sports community of the Azerbaijan Republic.

Roy Baker
WAKO President
