WBC bans Arizona

World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman, the WBC Board of Governors, and the Federation of Boxing Commissions of Mexico (FECOMBOX) have unanimously agreed not to authorize Mexican boxers to leave the country to fight professionally in Arizona due to “the shameful, inhumane, and discriminatory anti-immigration law, which is no other thing than a flagrant violation to the basic principles of dignity and equality between races.” A WBC statement likened the new Arizona law cracking down on illegal immigration to apartheid in South Africa noting that great figures of boxing have fought in Arizona including Julio Cesar Chavez, Salvador Sanchez, Konstantin Tszyu, and “Coloradito” Lopez and that the WBC will not expose boxers “to suffer that degrading act, humiliating and inhumane, as racial discrimination is.” The prohibition will come into effect on May 1st, 2010, respecting retroactive contracts. The WBC also notes that they are certain that the Arizona State Boxing Commission will understand that this is “an action against politicians who do not have a just mind and do not respect human equality.”

THE WBC DISQUALIFIES ARIZONA

Jose Sulaiman, World Boxing Council President, the WBC Board of Governors, and the Federation of Boxing Commissions of Mexico (FECOMBOX) unanimously agreed that they will not authorize Mexican boxers to leave the country to fight professionally in Arizona, United States, due to the shameful, inhumane, and discriminatory anti-immigration law, which is no other thing than a flagrant violation to the basic principles of dignity and equality between races.

The WBC fully devoted itself to fight against Apartheid in South Africa for 19 long years, until Nelson Mandela, who was in prison for about 27 years, was released to later become the President of such country.

Great figures of boxing have fought in Arizona, boxers such as Julio Cesar Chavez, Salvador Sanchez, Konstantin Tszyu, “Coloradito” Lopez and many, many others, even Mexican preliminary fighters, and the WBC will not allow that in boxing, athletes are exposed to suffer that degrading act, humiliating and inhumane, as racial discrimination is.

This prohibition will come into effect on May 1st, 2010, respecting retroactive contracts; we are certain that the Arizona State Boxing Commission, amicable and always in mutual cooperation with us, will understand that this is an action against politicians who do not have a just mind and do not respect human equality.

EL CMB DESCALIFICA A ARIZONA

José Sulaimán, presidente del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo y su Junta de Gobierno, además de unánimemente por la Federación de Comisiones de Boxeo de México, no autorizarán a boxeadores mexicanos a salir del país para pelear profesionalmente en Arizona, Estados Unidos, por la vergonzosa, inhumana y discriminatoria ley antiinmigrante, que no es más que una violación flagrante a los más elementales principios de dignidad e igualdad entre las razas.

El CMB se entregó en cuerpo y alma contra el Apartheid de Sudáfrica durante 19 largos años hasta que Nelson Mandela, preso por espacio de 27 años salió libre para luego convertirse en presidente de Sudáfrica.

En Arizona han peleado grandes del boxeo como Julio César Chávez, Salvador Sánchez, Konstantin Tszyu, el “Colorado” López y muchísimos más, inclusive mexicanos preliminaristas, y no permitirá el CMB que en su deporte se expongan sus atletas a sufrir ese acto indigno , humillante e inhumano que es la discriminación racial .

Esta prohibición dará principio el 1 de mayo del presente año, respetando los contratos retroactivos, estando seguros de que la Comisión Atlética de Arizona, tan amiga y siempre en mutua cooperación con nosotros, entenderá que este es un acto contra políticos sin mente justa y sin respeto a la igualdad humana.
