The head of the World Boxing Council called Monday for amateur boxing to reinstate head guards after they were absent during the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Mauricio Sulaiman, taking issue with a decision by the International Boxing Assn. (AIBA) to remove headgear for male boxers during the just-completed Olympics, said the number of facial cuts that occurred in the competition underline his concern.

“Having the headgear removed was a very dangerous and risky decision, and I was proved [correct] that it was a terrible situation, with the number of cuts,” Sulaiman told The Times in a telephone conversation from his Mexico City office.

HANDS OF STONE OPENS FRIDAY

 

 

The premiere of "Hands of Stone" nationwide throughout the United States on Friday, tells a fabled and legendary tale of rags to riches, with knuckles of granite fuelled and propelled by  the heart of a lion.

The Great Roberto Duran insists....and who`d argue... that this is NOT just another boxing movie!  Rather,  he considers it  a  life history,  starting with a boy battling poverty,  who navigated his way through pitfalls and past a  hard childhood in Panama.  He magnificently fought his way to the pinnacle elite of Boxing`s tough ranks, even though  so few believed he could reach, let alone  grasp glory. 

He achieved this in NOT one...but in four weight divisions! A gripping real life drama, which shows why this extraordinary man became a hero in his country, an icon throughout the Americas and a superstar globally. In his illustrious career, spanning five decades, Roberto Duran, seldom missed with his aims or with the blows directed by his powerful arms, and dispatched via his fists. No one MUST...OR...WILL  miss.....Hands of Stone! You`ve seen Rocky...now its time to see Stony!
