The top leader of the WBC, Mr. Mauricio Sulaimán, was emphatic when saying during the traditional “Coffee Tuesdays” that there is genuine concern for all those boxers who after several years of retirement have shown that they want to return to fight, such is the case of Evander Holyfield and Oscar de la Hoya to name a few.
At this point, he clarified that it is the same to do an exhibition fight than to do it in a professional wat, so the WBC is taking action with the different commissions to give maximum attention to these fights in order to be extremely strict with medical protocols, so the risks can be reduced.
Likewise, the president of the WBC, explained that times are changing and today we have to accept it, new generations are approaching boxing and we must be empathetic and open to changes as long as the integrity of all involved are not put at risk while they get into the ring.
An example of this, explained Mr. Sulaiman, was the exhibition fight of the multiple world champion, Floyd Mayweather, who returned to the ring to face youtuber Logan Paul in a fight that attracted a new audience and where Floyd showed that his quality is still intact.
