WBC 31/03/2016

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman is in Asia, by invitation of honor made to him by the President of the OPBF, Juan Ramon Guanzon for its fifty fourth Convention, in the coastal city of Bacolod in the Philippines, but that’s not all.

Our Leader has been named “Adoptive Son of the City of Bacolod.” a title granted unanimously for all of his multi achievements in boxing. One of these is fostering and boosting already excellent relations with members of the OPBF, continuing the great legacy of Don Jose Sulaiman, who always showed tremendous respect and admiration for Filipino fighters.

Honored and delighted to receive this distinction, Mauricio Sulaiman said his leadership of the most important organization in Boxing is an honor to his Father, who tirelessly worked to dignify this sport, taking it to every corner of the world, and Don Jose’s commitment to especially protect boxers.

For the leader of the WBC, it is an imperative priority to further promote the union between federations, because that was one of the dreams of Don Jose.

Mauricio also praised the work done by the OPBF through its President and reaffirmed the ongoing commitment to continue working with and for boxing.

Also during the sixteenth Annual Banquet “Flash Elorde Champions”, held in Manila, Philippines, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman awarded medals to Filipino legends including Erbito Salavarria Rene Barrientos and more.

The work of the convention will continue until Friday.
