Sulaiman Disputing Arce's Claim of Winning Four Titles

By Miguel Rivera

WBC President Jose Sulaiman is disputing Jorge Arce's claim of being the first "Mexican boxer to win four world titles in four weight divisions." Arce knocked out Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. last Saturday to win the super bantamweight title. Arce was the WBC/WBO junior flyeweight champion and the WBA/WBC super flyweight champion. Sulaiman says Arce's title at 112-pounds was the WBC interim-belt and the Mexican boxer never held the "full title."

"I congratulate him for his triumph, but my full respect still falls for the big triple world champions like Julio Cesar Chavez and Erik Morales. Arce can continue celebrating his victory, but he does not have four world titles, because one of them was temporary," Sulaiman said.

[QUOTE=Carlos Alberto;10528226]Arce, along with others, is a damn fool if he thinks he has 4 championships in 4 different weight classes. Technically he's a 3 division champion: 108 lbs., 115 lbs., and 122 lbs.; however, in reality he's only a…

The president of the United States is just a temporary position, but it still counts. Sulaiman is just another jealous... He can't stand the fact that one of his touts didn't make it first, or at all. Speaking of temporary…
