Lennox’s statement on the passing of Jose Sulaiman

January 17, 2014

I’m deeply saddened by the passing of my longtime friend Jose Sulaiman. He was one of the most honorable and generous men I’ve known in a sport that’s not necessarily known for that. He always made me feel honoured to be a WBC champion and, just as I was part of the WBC family, Jose was also part of my family. He fought tirelessly on behalf of fighters safety and was a strong advocate for fair treatment of female boxers. I’m proud to have known him and been given the time with him that I had. Prayers go out from my family to his during this difficult time. He will be surely missed. Rest in paradise Don Jose Sulaiman.
