The Jose Sulaiman Fund was his special and caring inspiration to help retired boxers who’ve fallen on hard times
Its strength and depth backbone has come from two auctions of Hublot Watches raising more than a million dollars and the constant help of Telcel Foundation which donated 150,000 each year for five years, plus many contributions from people all around the world. The total raised is 2.2 million dollars.The administration is done independently by the Nevada Community Foundation.
The WBC`s Legal Eagle Alberto Leon explained that in this last year, 223,300 dollars has been granted to 31 boxers in need. Over the years 1.4 million dollars has been granted to help with housing, medical matters and medicines. From 2019 the Fund is receiving applications for help on a year round basis.
A Covid sub committee has been created during the Pandemic, helping hundreds of boxers around the world with food parcels and basic necessities, in this time of need.
