Sulaiman: Charlomania like Don King era

WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán is excited about the card that will take place this Saturday at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, as a doubleheader there will see three WBC titles at stake.

“It’s a situation that has not been experienced in boxing for a long time, as today, many promoters focus only on the main fight,” said Sulaiman. “However, this night vividly reminds us of the Don King era, where on the same fabled evening, we enjoyed a superb array of world championship bouts.”

Jermell Charlo who faces Jeison Rosario and Jermall Charlo against Sergiy Derevyanchenko, will be two exciting fights that in the opinion of the WBC President are matches of great quality, since the Charlo rivals are very able and extremely dangerous. On the one hand Sergiy Derevyanchenko arrives at this fight with a record of 13 fights won, 10 of them by KO and only two defeats. While on the other hand, (WBA, IBF champion) Jeison has 20 fights won, 14 by knockout, a draw and only one defeat.

  • You know a boxing card is bad when a sanctioning body president becomes a promotor and has to sell the pathetic show to the public.

  • All you clowns or so called boxing fans dissing the card. I see no issue with the card. Its stacked. The timing is the issue as well as the price tag. How else were they going to pay for it? Or lets look at it this way. Fans would also complain if fighters decided to wait it out until fans are allowed to attend. I am as cynical as anyone but in this case you guys have to get your head out the sand. Boxing is a business. If you dont want to see it vote with your wallet and dont pay for it.

    • I believe you are right in your assessment Kp. All sports are in a deeply anemic situation, boxing its no the exception. I feel we, the fan, are in a brink to lose this amusement, if the second wave of the pandemic hit harder than expected. The coffin needs just one more nail

    • What is expected of the well-heeled in times of economic distress? Charity. The big-time promoters have all the money in the world, so why can’t they put on the occasional free or low-priced show during the recession (like they did in the old days)? That would attract new fans, who would then be inclined to buy PPVs once the economy returns.

  • Considering where we are in boxing right now it’s a pretty good card but 15 years ago it probably would have been a Boxing After Dark, not a PPV by any means.

  • I remember DK and Jose,both denied Buster Douglas was the world champion.They were later persuaded otherwise.

  • King/Sulaimán is what killed the sport
    Thanks for reminding us. Maybe make some more weight classes and titles, that should fix the sport. Ya, that’s a great idea!
    Make it more confusing for the average person so they won’t spend their money on fights.
