WBC plans Boxing World Cup!

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBC has announced a World Cup tournament for boxing later this year. “Boxing is going through a critical stage and we need heroes,” stated WBC president Jose Sulaiman. “We expect to carry out a World Cup with the countries that belong to the WBC during the second half of this year….we need to survive in boxing and new figures need to appear. I maintain that the idols are important for boxing.” The WBC chief proposed that each country would conduct internal tournaments to define their representatives for the final phase of the World Cup, which will include the participation of a great majority of member countries in the sanctioning organization.
