The World Boxing Council is deeply saddened by the death of Don Pedro Pueyo, which occurred this morning in Madrid, Spain.
The owner of the Oasis Hotel, who was born 69 years ago in Palma de Mayorca, was a great precursor of tourism and helped to transform Cancun into an epicenter of boxing.
The Oasis Hotel was the venue of two world conventions of our organization: The First in 2012, when the lifetime President of the WBC, Don José Sulaimán had the privilege of crowning the legendary Muhammad Ali as “King of Boxing.”
The second was last year where the attendance exceeded a thousand people and was one of the most emotional due to the presence of many champions.
Rest in peace! The founder of the “Oasis Arena Cancún”.
