From the office of WBC President Dr. José Sulaimán:

Current Status of World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman

The World Boxing Council and the family of our president, Jose Sulaiman, wish to share his current condition after a delicate open heart surgery which took place on October 1st.

With great joy we inform that our dear Don Jose is successfully recuperating, and yesterday a major step forward was taken in his rehabilitation process after spending 50 days in the Intensive Care Unit at UCLA’s Ronald Reagan Hospital.

He is expected to be moved to the Physcial Therapy Rehab Center by the beginning of next week where he will start working on his muscle strength, as all prior complications derived from the surgery have been defeated, and by knockout!

The Sulaiman family wishes to wholeheartedly thank all those who have filled them with care, faith, and hope, giving them much strength to overcome these very difficult moments, and to sincerely thank the so many who have reached out by phone, letters, messages, and visits showing sincere and unconditional friendship, solidarity, and support, but more especially, the many prayers which have been elevated to God for his recovery.

Finally we wish to thank from the bottom of our heart all doctors, nurses, specialists, technicians, lift team members, and staff who have passionately and with extreme dedication made our Don Jose be on his way to leave the hospital in the near future.
