Round 12: Create A Habitat At Home
By Mauricio Sulaimán
Son of José Sulaimán / WBC President
The world of sport and entertainment is frozen worldwide and
consequently, there is no boxing.
I decided to work more than ever. The key has been to get up
every day with an action plan to follow, and every night,
review what has been achieved.
We have all complained about not having time to do so many
different things, well, now here is the moment we have
awaited so long to read that book, organize our office and
memory boxes, learn to do something desired, write, or
simply be there with our loved ones.
I am exercising every day, I take care of my diet and I stay
well hydrated, but above all, I work on my mental health.
What generates anguish, I stop doing, I don’t see WhatsApp
news or messages, I don’t let people call me to talk about
tragedies and stories which now more than ever are urban
legends. I choose the things that make me feel good.
We can control nothing outside, but we can control what we
do and how we guide our loved ones.
At the World Boxing Council, we have implemented very
important and entertaining dynamics.
The #wbcworkout on social media has managed to integrate
champions and boxers from all around the world with fans. So
many are following boxing at home.
The goals of promoting physical activation, staying home and
achieving family integration through moments of joy and
entertainment have indeed been achieved.
We also have the WBC Talks, videoconferences every day in
English and Spanish, through the WBC University LiberQuaré.
We’ve been through 12 episodes so far, and we’ve had all
kinds of themes and experts.
They are very illustrative and, above all, entertaining,
since a large part of the talks are dedicated to sharing
Doctors, referees, judges, commissioners, champions,
journalists, and even artists have starred.
I am also in daily communication with all members of the
boxing industry, I speak with promoters, managers, the
press, and most importantly, boxers.
We have many plans already, and the WBC will collaborate in
everything to support our sport.
Every day I try to watch at least one of the legendary
fights, and find them on YouTube.
Here are 12 that I recommend:
Marvin Hagler (USA) vs. Tommy Hearns (USA).
José Luis Castillo (MEX) against Diego Corrales (USA) (1).
Arturo Gatti (CAN) against Micky Ward (USA) (1, 2 and 3).
