On January 17, the WBC Legends of Boxing Museum located at the American Sports University in San Bernardino, CA will host a dinner party in honor of ailing former world champion, Genaro “Chicanito” Hernandez. An evening full of entertainment will be provided, along with a silent auction featuring rare autographed gloves, statues and other prized items from the world of boxing not normally available for purchase. Among the featured guest speakers are WBC President Jose Sulaiman, WBC super bantamweight champion Israel Vazquez and WBC Continental Americas & NABF heavyweight champion Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola amongst others. Please purchase your tickets in advance (323.229.1694), as there is limited space available.
If you want to participate, but are unable to attend, please send donations to World Boxing Cares (WBCARES) 36 W. 22nd St. NY, NY 10010. All donations are tax deductible (Tax ID: # 262665978) and 100% of the money goes to the Hernandez family. Genaro was diagnosed two months ago with a very rare cancer that has spread rapidly. Since his insurance carrier is refusing to cover all his needed treatments, the WBC is asking lovers of boxing to help support Genero in his time of need.
