Sam Fernandes heads the Indian Chapter of the World Boxing Championship


Boxing is both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport and is a standard fixture in most international games—it also has its own World Championships. The World Boxing Championships is an organization that unifies all the commissions of the world and looks into the expansion of boxing as a sport in various countries.

The council initially created by 11 countries: United States, Argentina, England, France, Mexico, the Philippines, Panama, Chile, Peru, Venezuela, and Brazil have now focussed their attention towards India as a country to develop the attraction towards the sport. The sport promises several health benefits such as fat burning, increased muscle tone, strengthening of bones and ligaments, cardiovascular fitness, stress relief, etc.

WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman and Cares Chair, Jill Diamond along with Co-Chair, Chris Manzur are proud to announce the formation of the WBC Cares India Chapter. It will be headed by Producer, Sam Fernandes, who, along with his partner, Jai Singh Shekhawat, were named as Promoter of the Year by WBC Asia Boxing (ABCO). Commenting on the occasion Sam Fernandes said “India is a regular medal-holder at the Asian Games and Commonwealth Games in Boxing. Boxers Mary Kom and Vijender Singh are household names in the country. The time has come to take the sport to the next level and with the Indian chapter of WBC in place our entire focus will be on the same. We will aggressively promote the art of boxing and will lookout for fresh talent.”

Producer Sam Fernandes has been associated with Boxing and Bollywood for many years. He has marketed and distributed twenty films and produced six. We wish that Boxing becomes as popular a sport in the country as Bollywood with Sam’s presence. “WBC Cares also has an India Chapter now. This is the CSR wing of the championship and our primary objectives are to help the NGOs working towards various causes at the grassroots level” said an enthusiastic Sam as he signed off for the moment.
