The WBC organizes the “Night of the Champions” *

The World Boxing Council is still undergoing serious financial problems due to the substantial payments to

be done after our survival from a crisis last year.

The world boxing community came together to help the WBC get up from the canvas at the last second and

stand on its feet again to continue being the world leader in professional boxing, with equal opportunities for

everybody, impartiality, firm adherence to its rules and regulations, and boxers’ safety.

 

Despite the fact that none of its executives receives any economic compensation for their work, the World

Boxing Council is now considered to be stronger, more powerful, prestigious and with the highest world

credibility as never before in the history of international boxing.

 

The WBC will organize a great event called “Night of Champions” in Mexico City in December of this year,

which will be attended by all current world champions and an important number of ex champions such as

Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson, Roberto Duran, Julio Cesar

Chavez, Oscar De la Hoya, and many more.

 

One of the highlights of such outstanding event will be the recognition and designation of Muhammad Ali as

the “Champion of Champions” of all time, and the presentation of the championship belt to his daughter

Laila Ali, should she win the WBC Women’s World Supermiddle title next Saturday, when she fights Erin

Toughill in Washington, D.C.
