WBC Welterweight Tournament Postponed Due To Visa Issues

 The Real Deal Boxing and Lee Baxter Promotions regret to announce that the Jose Sulaiman WBC World Invitational Tournament, scheduled to take place this Saturday, August 25th in Toronto, Canada, has been postponed due to visa issues.

“We were forced to make the very difficult decision today to postpone the event due to learning that, despite our best efforts, several of the tournament’s international fighters would not be granted visas to enter Canada.”, explained Eric Bentley, COO of The Real Deal Boxing.

“While we worked tirelessly to resolve the issue down to the last possible minute, and we could have made arrangements to move forward with revised tournament bouts, it was very important to us that the 4 semi-finalists, Van Heerden, Lawson, Solomon and Santana, not lose the opportunity they rightfully earned by winning in the quarter-finals due to issues out of their control.”

“We look forward to announcing the date and location of the rescheduled event in the coming weeks and we sincerely thank the boxing fans of Toronto for their support and their understanding of what was a necessary but very difficult decision for The Real Deal Boxing and our partners at Lee Baxter Promotions to make, especially considering the support the city has shown the event.”

The rescheduled date and location for the semi-final round of the Jose Sulaiman WBC World Invitational Tournament will be announced shortly.
