WBC's Sulaiman Shreds WBO President Over Verbal Jabs

By Miguel Rivera

There seems to be a new Cold War brewing, between the WBC and WBO. The president of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Mauricio Sulaiman, said the leader of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Francisco 'Paco' Valcárcel, was "rude" for declined to participate in a recent summit between the WBA, WBC and IBF in Cancun.

Valcarcel went to the social networks and wondering if the other three sanctioning bodies discussed the prospect of eliminating "silver, platinum, interim, regular" and other side titles.

"There was a meeting in good faith, goodwill. But if you chose not to participate then it's their problem for not being part of a good proactive and positive meeting. I am also sorry that after the meeting Valcárcel was trying to downplay the meeting, by saying if we discussed the titles of copper or silver. It is an attitude that is very low. I thought he was a person of greater class," Sulaiman said to Carlos Narvaez.

"The WBO has always been a different kind of organization. The WBO had even ranked a fighter when he was dead. He was dead and continued to rise in the rankings. We are an organization of 165 countries. We are an organization that works with a medical committee. I do not know of a rule that was born from the WBO. Dare I say that they have never implemented a rule, then they engaged in sanctioning championships. That is his work in boxing. Why not get together to make improvements, because otherwise they are only selling their belt."

techliam You do make a valid point. Although his stance on the "titles" issue might've fallen a deft ears at least it would've be formally presented and addressed.

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;14711387]The JBC accepted in 2012 that it would start recognising the WBO titles as of April 1, 2013, though apparently not the international or regional titles, just the world tiles.

[QUOTE=EZ E;14711555]@techliam With all due respects, it's not about "moral high horses", I'm saying that at least Valcarcel is CORRECT in signaling out the "titles" problem, and we older fans know that it went to super EXTREMES when the Suliaman/WBC…

[QUOTE=techliam;14711333]The WBO do have super champions, though not in the same manner as the WBA, look at Wlad for example. I do agree with the poster above in saying this isnt what i should be focussing on, though my point…
