Ex-boxer becomes Wisconsin's boxing new commissioner

Add this to your website

Wisconsin's Secretary of State, Celia Jackson, recently announced that Hector "Hands of Stone" Colon, the former boxer, will oversee the state Department of Regulation and Licensing which regulates boxing for the state.

A former top amateur boxer has been named as commissioner of boxing, Colon won the 147-pound title in the U.S. Championships in 1993 and competed on the U.S. National Boxing team with fighters including Oscar de la Hoya.

Known for his powerful knockout punch, in the '90s, Colon was considered the best amateur welterweight in the country.

Colon not only worked at the state Department of Workforce Development, the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority and the city of Milwaukee, but his most recent job was working for Jackson as an executive assistant.

According to a statement issued by regulation and licensing, "Colon has the perfect one-two combination for the position," including experience in both boxing and government.

The postion became open when Roxanne Petersen, a long-time department of regulation and licensing employeem retired earlier this year.

The commissioner oversees boxing matches along with two other agency employees. Among the duties are checking hand wraps and watching weigh-ins.

As Boxing Commissioner Colon will have the final say on any matters or decisions that need to be made regarding the sport. “I’m looking forward to working as the boxing commissioner to ensure the safe and competent practice of professional boxing in Wisconsin,” said Colon.

Sounds like the State of Wisconsin has picked the right person for this job.
