Boxing News-Edwin Valero, who committed suicide in his jail cell after having killed his wife

From the office of WBC President Jose Sulaiman: WBC President Jose Sulaiman and all the members of the World Boxing Council are deeply saddened, moved, and in sorrow due to the tragedy that took place regarding the case of WBC lightweight world champion, Edwin Valero, who committed suicide in his jail cell after having killed his wife. Edwin Valero will remain in the 300 years of history of boxing as the only boxer who as a world champion had a professional career of 27 knockouts in 27 fights for a knockout percentage of 100 percent; Vitali Klitschko is second to him with a knockout percentage of 97.1 percent..

Valero was very close to President Sulaiman and many of members of the WBC who witnessed the happy years of the fighter when he won the lightweight world title on April 4, 2009, and when he defended the title last February 6 in Monterrey, where he was joined by his wife and two little children for two weeks, showing a behavior and a humanitarian sense that were very far from what happened.

The World Boxing Council declares today, April 19, 2010, a day of world mourning. The WBC will begin analyzing a plan to set up a fund for the education of his two little children, who were left alone in life after the passing away of both of their parents.
