JOSE SULAIMAN BOXERS FUND RECEIVES $150,000 SPONSORSHIP FROM TELMEX FOUNDATION

The World Boxing Council has received a $150,000 sponsorship for the Jose Sulaiman Boxers Fund which was set up by the late WBC president Don Jose Sulaiman.
The WBC and the Nevada Community Foundation said they are extremely happy to announce a historic agreement between the WBC and Telmex Foundation. Under the agreement, Telmex will
deposit the sponsorship moneys directly with the Nevada Community Foundation.
The WBC said Telmex’s sponsorship arose from an agreement with the WBC under which referees officiating WBC-sanctioned
events and corresponding undercard fights will wear the WBC uniform, which includes the logo of Telmex Foundation.
It noted that throughout its history, Telmex’s continued support of many worthy endeavors, has transcended its commercial brand
quality to become a true leader of many important charitable causes. For example, through Mr. Carlos Slim’s efforts
and commitment, Telmex pioneered a program called Ring Telmex. That program provides monthly support to 25 fighters, as well as a lifetime pension and medical expenses to 27 former boxing champions.
The WBC said the Jose Sulaiman Boxers Fund, which was Don Jose’s life-long dream, was created with $1 million seed money from the 2012 memorable Night Of Champions, where the WBC and the Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot raised $1 million. The Fund is currently beginning its second year of grants through the Nevada Community Foundation’s administration.
