  Round 12: The Best Of The WBC 2019

By Mauricio Sulaiman
Son of Jose Sulaiman / WBC President

 

It is impossible not to mention the tragedy that shook the world of sport and humanity globally. Kobe Bryant and his daughter died in a helicopter crash. What a tragedy! How sad!

Why did they fly under conditions questioned by the authorities? What would have happened if this or that? These are the questions that the world is dedicated to debate and discover.

This tragedy is comparable to the news of the death Roberto Clemente, a Puerto Rican baseball player, who was traveling by plane on a humanitarian mission to deliver food to marginalized areas and victims of the earthquake in Managua in 1972. Also comparable is that fateful morning of August 12, 1982, when the world awoke to the news of the death of reigning world champion Salvador Sanchez, who died in a car accident at the age of just 23.

It has been great to see the tributes paid in his honor by the world sports community. Rest in peace, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the others who perished.

On another issue, we are in the voting process for the awards for the best of 2019, and contrary to the old practices of voting by the governing board, the World Boxing Council has decided to completely open up this process to the fans so YOU can determine the most magnificent highlights of last year’s activity.
