Sulaiman Admits He May Retire From WBC Very Soon

By Rene Umanzor

The president of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Jose Sulaiman, admits that he might retire from the post he has held since December 5, 1975. At 81-years-old, Sulaiman wants to spend more time with his family and to attend to personal matters.

"I am very tired. I've had 65 years in boxing. I'm looking at the possibility of not continuing. I really do not know what to do and I have a week to decide," said Sulaiman.

One of the frontrunners to replace Don Jose would be his son, the World Boxing Council executive secretary Mauricio Sulaiman - but Jose does not expect his son to stick arouond to accept the position. Mauricio has told Jose that he will also walk away when the time comes.
