LAS VEGAS, NV — Hey, I’m just trying to help give everyone in the boxing game a heads up on behalf of Mia St. John, as she is organizing a dinner at The Mirage through her charity in honor of Thomas “Hitman” Hearns and Mauricio Sulaiman.   Sugar Ray Leonard and Roy Jones are among the many high profile guests expected to attend).  It will be held on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 during the week of the WBC Convention in Las Vegas.

If you want to purchase a table for the event, you can go to Mia’s website,  go to “Support us”, then to “Donate” and that will bring you to Paypal.

Mr. Mauricio Sulaiman
World Boxing Council
Cuzco #872, COL Lindavista

Dear Mr. Sulaiman:

 Reference is made to the Memorandum/Letter (WBC No.: 41256), dated July 8, 2009, from yourself to Promoters Don King and Gary Shaw regarding “Two WBC elimination fights in Florida.”  Among others, a copy of this Memorandum/Letter was sent to me, as the President of the Association of Boxing Commissions; and, considering its content, I am compelled to respond.

 Specifically, the letter notifies Promoters King and Shaw that: “[t]he Florida Boxing Commission has appointed all the ring officials, next July 11, disregarding and ignoring the WBC without having the courtesy of answering any of our communications or phone calls.” While, in the Memorandum/Letter, you advise Promoters King and Shaw that “the WBC will continue to sanction these 2 elimination bouts in order to support your co-promotion,” you also note that “the WBC reserves its rights, as the owner of the WBC Championship trademark and accolade [,] in case of any disputes on these fights in Florida.” (continue reading…)
