WBC TAKES A STAND AGAINST CA'S PROP 187

     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).
