WBC PRESIDENT'S WEEKLY REPORT
JANUARY 13 – 17
JANUARY 13th

Weekly press conference: Pedro Guevara was presented with his WBC championship belt. He won the vacant WBC light flyweight world title with a seventh-round knockout against Akira Yaegashi on December 30th in Tokyo.

JANUARY 14th
  • Meeting with Horacio de la Vega.
  • Boxrec.com informed the WBC that they have updated their system to reflect the new consensus of the names of the weight divisions.

Meeting with Oscar de la Hoya, Canelo Alvarez and Pepe Gomez when they visited Mexico City.

JANUARY 16th

Mass in the loving memory of Don Jose Sulaiman. It has been one year since his passing.

  • No. 4 ranked Hank Lundy had been placed in a lightweight title elimination tournament by the WBC. Hank has been closely associated to the WBC and his promoter, Jimmy Burchfield, has worked very hard for Hank to be successful. At Thursday's weigh-in for his fight scheduled for the next night in Verona, New York, Hank missed the contracted weight by four pounds, which is not acceptable. The WBC will suspend Hank, and will not rate him until he provides a medical examination in which a specialist determines the division in which he can compete. This is necessary for his safety, as well as to protect the public and fans from fights falling apart at the last minute. Lundy can be a very good fighter and we hope he will undergo the necessary tests to comply with the WBC decision.
  • Departure to Las Vegas.


JANUARY 17th
Several meetings took place at the MGM:
  • Chuck Williams, to begin planning for the 2015 convention in Kunming, China.
  • Prive Medical Group, to implement concierge services in the medical area and identify specific cases to aid former champions.
  • Tom Sarkis from Dubai.
  • Yvon Michel, regarding light heavyweight champions tournament.
  • Don King.
  • Bill Caplan.
  • Michelle Corrales.
  • Akihiko Honda.
  • Ray Mancera, USA Government affairs.
  • Peter Kohl and Dietmar Poszwa from Germany.
Attendance at the card “ Return to Glory” at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Deontay Wilder of the United States became the new WBC heavyweight world champion with a 12-round unanimous decision against defending champion Bermane Stiverne of Haiti/Canada.


WBC super bantamweight world champion Leo Santa Cruz of Mexico retained his title with an eighth-round TKO win against Jesus Ruiz, also of Mexico.


Amir Imam of the United States won the vacant WBC Continental Americas super lightweight title with a fifth-round TKO against Fidel Maldonado Jr., also of the United States.
