Jose Sulaiman, WBC President, Passes Away at Age 82

By Salvador Rodriguez

Jose Sulaiman, the legendary leader of the World Boxing Council, died this afternoon in Los Angeles, at age 82, which was confirmed by his son Mauricio Sulaiman, executive secretary of the World Boxing Council.

Sulaiman had a heart operation on October and even showed a slight improvement, but on December 30 - Mauricio indicates that his father suffered further complications and never recovered.

Jose Sulaiman's body will be transferred in the coming days to Mexico, but for now, Mauricio says he appreciates the concern that everyone in the boxing world had for his father.
