The WBC and NCF Announce the 2014-2015 WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund Awards
The World Boxing Council and Nevada Community Foundation are pleased to announce the awards for the 2014-2015 WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund, formerly the WBC Boxers Foundation Fund.
The Fund was created to provide much-needed financial assistance to retired professional boxers who have fallen on hard times. Through it, current president Mauricio Sulaimán continues to carry out the vision set out by the late WBC president José Sulaimán: to create a world where the boxing sport takes care of its heroes, past and present. The Fund is administered by Nevada Community Foundation, an independent charitable organization based in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Thanks to the generosity of WBC-affiliated promoters and sponsors, the Fund will be able to award up to $160,000.00 this year. 22 applications were received between August 1 and September 15, 2014. 20 boxers will be awarded assistance for medical care, housing, and other crucial life needs.
The WBC would also like to extend a special thanks to the Fund Selection Committee for their hard work and contributions.
