WBC TAKES A STAND AGAINST CA'S PROP 187
Published November 17, 1994
WBC President Jose Sulaiman announced that the WBC will institute a temporary boycott of all title fights in California to protest the recent voter-approved Proposition 187, which bars public aid to illegal immigrants in the state. Sulaiman said that the boycott win be in effect from November 22 through March 30, 1995. In addition, Sulaiman said that any Mexican boxer who fights in CA during that period will be barred from WBC matches for two years: "The boycott is against the governor of California, for promoting a racist and inhumane law" (L.A. TIMES, 11/16).
