Today as part of the International Forum on Physical Education and Sports Culture within the work of the World Knowledge Summit 2021, the President of the World Boxing Council Mauricio Sulaiman, was presented with the doctorate Honoris Causa by the D.H.C., Omar Alcantara Barrera.

“I am truly thrilled. It is difficult to describe how I feel right now. Sport is in the blood of the Sulaimans. Through sports we have been able to serve others. Every boxer has an inspirational story. All boxers teach us that there are no unreachable Summits. Through boxing, we have been able to help those stories in some way.
