WBC "suspends" Cristobal Arreola for cursing

The WBC is currently holding its 47th annual convention in South Korea at the moment, and one of the pieces of news that has come out of the big to-do is one of the stupidest pieces of news boxing has had in some time.

WBC President Jose Sulaiman proposed that notoriously foul-mouthed heavyweight Cristobal Arreola should be suspended for cursing after his loss to WBC heavyweight titlist Vitali Klitschko in September.

This was put to a vote -- seriously.

It was agreed upon that Arreola would be suspended for six months -- seriously.

So if you ever wonder if sanctioning body conventions are anything more than thinly-veiled excuses for these guys to get drunk in an exotic locale and hang out for a few days, this should be a hint. I'm not saying they do nothing useful at these things -- they are also, to their credit, looking into fighter deaths -- but could this have possibly been a bigger waste of however long they spent discussing it?

Anyway, despite the WBC's finger-wagging, expect Arreola to go ahead and fight anyway on December 5 in Atlantic City, live on HBO.
