Things are still up in air over which individual will take over as president of the World Boxing Council. On Wednesday, the WBC President of nearly four decades, Jose Sulaiman, passed away at the age of 82.

Jose's son, Mauricio Sulaiman, was always viewed as the future heir to the throne. Mauricio has been the longtime Executive Secretary of the sanctioning body, but appears to have no interest in taking over in the top spot.

"Truthfully it does not interest me [to take over his position]. I stood by my father and worked with him in. boxing. Everything that people saw that I did was on the orders of my father, a great generator of ideas who was always thinking of ways to innovate this sport," he said.

"The plan of the Council was always see him return but that never happened. This is a very solid organization that has a lot of capable people who are able to drive it. The WBC will be different and hopefully even better. It must run its course and we'll see what happens."

A special meeting will take place in the coming weeks to appoint a new president.

Oops.. Continued.. He's hoping for capable hands to take over and keep the organisation moving forward. You're reaching, to say the least.

No he's not saying that. You're just twisting it out of context and implying that all by yourself. He's complimenting his father's efforts and hoping for capable hands to take over and keep the organisati
