Mauricio Sulaimán

For decades, the World Boxing Council has been the sum of the effort, knowledge and passion of its people. The best referees, judges, supervisors, doctors and experts in different boxing areas have dedicated themselves to train the best ring officials in the world. Our determination to constantly promote the excellence of our Ring Officials isn't about personal fame, nor popularity as an institution; simply, we have a compromise to keep the wellbeing of our boxers, and the integrity of our sport. We know that our work can affect, for better or worse, the health, careers and dreams of our athletes, of their families and of those who are part of their teams. The WBC has always been renowned for being at the forefront of new knowledge, trying new ways, bringing new technologies and searching for innovations in all areas that can make our sport safer, more appealing and more fair. I'm sure that the WBC will keep on this path, to continue setting the course of our sport with projects, such as WBC University. We know that there's still a lot to do, and that excites us. I'm proud to share the same deep gratitude that my father always had for so many people that have dedicated their valuable time, and the best of themselves in order to train generations of Ring Officials, which have managed to build, across all this time, a true family.
