WBC's Sulaiman is Angry Over Belts Being Sold

By Miguel Rivera

The president of the World Council of Boxing (WBC), José Sulaimán, is very upset with certain organizations that are entering Mexico and other regions, and "selling their belts" for money. The organizations are not recognized for the FECOMBOX and they are placing titles at stake in fights where the opponents have no qualifications to compete for world titles.

He says the actions by these organizations are hurting the reputations of the WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO.

For his part, Sulaimán is pleading with promoters and fighters to avoid being lured in by the claws of these “supposed organizations.” He say the only thing they are looking for is money and have no regard for the health of the particpants.

He says the Federation of Boxing Commission (FECOMBOX) has already announced their position against these organizations.

:bryce::nonono::nonono: Suliman is the last person who needs to be complaining about some shady stuff going on and an organization charging fees for titles to fighters who are not qualified! What happened to the media challenging the folks they interview…
