WBC President: “the World should not panic because of the coronavirus”

The President of the world Boxing Council (WBC) Mauricio Sulaiman expressed dissatisfaction with the attitude of the international community to the epidemic of the coronavirus.

The introduction of quarantine in the United States and Mexico hurt the promoters and sanctioning organizations, deprived of the income from a considerable number of large events planned for the second half of March.

“I have talked with many experts and doctors about the virus and made sure that the world responds incorrectly. Please read about it for yourself to understand that you don’t need to panic. Life can go on as usual, it is only necessary to take precautions,” wrote Sulaiman in his Twitter.

Across America EN masse canceled the Boxing event and MMA tournaments because the organizers couldn’t fill the arena due to restrictions by the Athletic commissions for public events.
