Sulaiman: NSAC has crossed the line!

WBC President Dr. Jose Sulaiman has ripped the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s selection of judges in his recent “Hook to the Liver” column published in El Universal:

“There are some boxing commissions who believe their home is Heaven, and that they are almighty. They don’t understand or recognize that a WBC world champion is exclusive to our agency, for being the one and only owner of this accolade.

“In the case of the September 15 fight in Las Vegas, we are not responsible for the appointment of judges. The Nevada Commission humiliated us, taking out of their sleeve a judge who has only acted for another organization … and that the WBC has never named. This has passed the line of tolerance, and I do not doubt that major steps must be taken to challenge discrimination, abuse, and lack of respect for the most basic principle of justice and rights.”

It is believed that the appointment upsetting Sulaiman is WBA judge Stanley Christodoulou being brought in from South Africa to work the Chavez-Martinez fight.
