The World Boxing Council, regarded as the premier professional boxing organization in the world at present, will choose a new president on Tuesday.

The new president will succeed the late Don Jose Sulaiman who passed away last month after critical heart surgery at the UCLA Medical Center in California.

Don Jose’s son and executive director Mauricio Sulaiman who was installed in an acting capacity following his father’s death is considered the frontrunner in the race to be chosen as the new WBC president.

Several prominent boxing people including promoter Don King, Mexican promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer and the eminent Japanese businessman-sportsman and promoter Akihiko Honda have all come out in support of Mauricio Sulaiman assuming his late father's post. 

In a remarkable coincidence Mauricio Sulaiman is the same age as Don Jose when he was elected WBC president in 1975.

The new president will be chosen by a panel of 26 members representing the WBC’s 10 federations plus the votes of 6 vice presidents.

The winner must garner 75 percent of the votes.

Prior to the vote on Tuesday, there will be a final farewell mass for the late Don Jose Sulaiman at the Perpetuo Socorro Church in Lomas de Chapultepec, Mexico City.
