The WBC continues its efforts to save amateur boxing






World Boxing Council Executive Secretary Mauricio Sulaiman, stresses the WBC will continue fighting to safeguard the integrity of amateur boxing, and against the AIBA monopoly (International Amateur Boxing Association).

He explained one of the major concerns of the WBC President, Jose Sulaiman, is not only discrimination and lack of justice that this means for the sport, but also the safety of the boxers.

He pointed out that amateur boxers risk serious injury if mismatched against professional fighters.
