WBC convention kicks off in Las Vegas

Tributes paid to the late Jose Sulaiman as annual convention gets underway

THE WBC convention got underway inside the Mirage in Las Vegas with an enormous A-list of past and present champions.

The opening ceremony was dominated by the passing of former president Jose Sulaiman, who died this year, and several videos documenting his life and times were shared in front of a congregation of hundreds.

Showtime’s Jimmy Lennon was the MC and Sugar Ray Leonard and Jeff Fenech were among several who were invited on stage to share their memories of Sulaiman.
