For WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, this announcement is very important not only for Panamanian boxing but for that of the whole world, because this type of effort and initiatives are so needed, especially after such a complicated year for everyone where the Covid-19 pandemic has hit our beloved sport hard.
“I am very happy to be part of this important event, because this announcement is a manifestation of goodwill and the need to activate boxing worldwide, Panama is a land of champions and I am sure that the new idols will emerge”-he commented-
He recalled that unforgettable visit to the President of Panama, Doctor Laurentino Cortizo, to whom he presented a world champion belt, the famous “Green and Gold.”
