Sulaiman Clarifies Remarks on Mayweather, Hitting a Lady

By WBC President Dr. José Sulaimán:

“I would like to clarify my feelings about some recent comments of mine, and apologize for not finding the right words in English - there are many times when I cannot find the right words to express what I really mean. The comments attributed to me are a complete misrepresentation of my true feelings.

“I am a devoted husband and father of two daughters, and have three wonderful granddaughters, as well. The Virgin of Guadalupe is my superior saint. I am the person that developed female boxing, and I am the person in the WBC that has always been concerned with the protection of women in the ring. I have always been a strong supporter of women’s rights and the protection of women in society. Those are the facts – everybody knows me.

“In my comments, I just meant to say that I have always been in the corner of all the boxers of the world. They are my greatest heroes and, good or bad, I will always be in their corner.

“I know Floyd Mayweather personally, and I know that he’s a good person. I know that he accepted a plea deal for a serious offense, and I did not intend to make light of that. The judge sentenced him to 90 days, which I think is fair. But I know that Floyd is a good human being with a good heart, and I am confident that he will redeem himself with his actions in the future.

“I just wanted Floyd to know that the WBC will always stay strongly in his corner.”

Jose Slime-Man is an opportunistic pig woman hater rapist who would sell the Puta Guadalupe's loose butthole to enhance his sanctioning fee spongeability

The answer to 99 out of 100 questions? MONEY. They WBC knows if they strip him they won't collect the large sanctioning fee that would come their way if Floyd defended the title. It goes by a percentage of the…

Why can't Jose do humanity and the boxing community a favor and just die already? His PR people did a wonderful job crafting this "apology" for him.
