WBC's Jose Sulaiman To Receive The Key To Miami

(Miami, FL ) - Mayor Tomas Regalado will welcome the President of World Boxing Council, Jose Sulaiman Chagnon on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at an official ceremony where the Key to the City will be presented to President Sulaiman Chagnon. "President Sulaiman's work as WBC's leader is admirable. He has always worked to humanize the sport and this represents another success for a man who has been instrumental in the rise of many professional boxing greats," said Mayor Regalado. Sulaiman who is 82 years old, has presided over the WBC since December 5, 1975. He was inducted into the International Hall of Fame of Canastota, NY on June 10, 2006.

"I have dedicated over 60 years of my life to the sport of boxing. I have always been very proud of my Mexican and Latin American nationality. It is an extraordinary privilege to receive such an honorable distinction. I deeply appreciate the gesture of Mr. Tomas Regalado, Mayor of the beautiful and famous City of Miami," said Sulaiman Chagnon. Under the leadership of Sulaiman, the WBC has created rules that have brought huge benefits to the boxers in the ring; such as a change from 15 to 12 rounds in title fights, the official weigh-in 24 hours before matches, intermediate weight classes to ensure that all boxers fight in their true weight class, three judges to precede over the matches while the referee is charged exclusively with the exchange of punches as well as the various annual exams for champions and challengers.

Is the same key they gave the kardashians last year? Maybe, Miami can get some fights. Wishful thinking.

This mayor is a damn douche. How fitting that his name is "Regalado" which translates to "gift". Much like Sulaiman gifts title shots as opposed to earning them. The WBC means $h!t anyway, as does their shameful POS president.

Sulaiman is good for boxing

I guess two completely undeserving Mexicans will be running for Mayor of Miami next election cycle.
