Jose Sulaiman Championship Boxing TicketsAfter the death of famed boxing judge and president-for-life of the World Boxing Council in 2014, it was decided that a series of annual boxing tournaments would be held in his honor. The tournament would allow some of the greatest amateur boxers from around the world to compete, win prize money and make names for themselves in the boxing world. Eventually, promotional organizations like Evander Holyfield’s The Real Deal Boxing and Lee Baxter Promotions would take up the task of organizing tournaments each year and providing facilities and arenas in which the young boxers could compete. These tournaments are all WBC sanctioned, and the fighters who perform well in them are typically given opportunities to compete under the WBC’s aegis. As a great promoter and lover of boxing who was instrumental in reducing the length of championship fights from 15 to 12 rounds to better protect the health of boxers, Sulaiman passionately believed in promoting and developing young talent. Now, boxing fans from across the world can gather together in his honor and watch future stars compete with one another for the glory of being the best.
