Results of the WBC Amateur Boxing Don Jose 2nd Invitational Show
December 17, 2015
Photos:   Amanda Armstrong

(DEC 17)  On Saturday, December 12, was a cold, snowy, winter day but on the outskirts of Denver the Colorado Golden Gloves Charities, 6161 W. 44th Avenue in Wheat ridge, presented the 2nd Annual WBC (World Boxing Council) Amateur Jose Sulaiman Invitational Boxing Show that showcased 27 exciting and entertaining amateur bouts before a packed house that braved the weather conditions.

The WBC Amateur Jose Sulaiman Invitational Boxing Show held in Colorado was organized by WBC Cares Colorado leaders Stephen Blea and Raylene Carbone, with the blessings of current WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, son of the late Jose Sulaiman. In the hopes of continuing the legacy of the late WBC President Jose Sulaiman (his dream of affording every amateur boxer worldwide an equal opportunity in attaining their goal in the sport continuing), these WBC Amateur Invitational events are beginning to attract more attention, and participants, nationwide.

Part of the mission of WBC Cares Colorado (Blea and Carbone) is to help those in need and recognizing Coloradans who have dealt with/are dealing with hardship and/or disaster is what they do. Saturdayís event did just that as WBC Cares Colorado recognized the family of the late Diedre Vickers-Strauch, a married (Kevin Strauch) mother of two small children (daughter Millie and son Ryan) who passed away following medical complications arising from rectal cancer, earlier this year.

The father of Diedre Vickers-Strauch, Vic Vickers, along with numerous other family members, was in attendance at Saturdayís 2nd Annual WBC Amateur Jose Sulaiman Invitational boxing event, Mr. Vickers given a mini-replica of the WBC Champions belt by WBC Cares Colorado and WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman.

The numerous awards given others in need of help included monetary support secured through the sale of raffle tickets and sponsors making contributions to the cause, something 'Don' Jose Sulaiman would have been proud to see. Kudos to the Colorado Golden Gloves Charities (Jess Mora), WBC (Mauricio Sulaiman) and WBC Cares Colorado (Stephen Blea and Raylene Carbone) for a job well done.

The amateur boxing crowd in Colorado continues their support of the sport they love and Saturdayís fight action did not let them down with 27 bouts that provided solid, amateur boxing action.

With that all said all Raylene & I can say again & again Thank-You & we are Blessed with one Awesome Family the WBC & NABF!
