'Don Jose', as he liked to be called: Sulaiman at a weigh-in in Las Vegas in 2004

Jose Sulaiman: Administrator respected, feared and hated in equal measure whose reforms made boxing a safer sport

Jose Sulaiman was the boss at the World Boxing Council, boxing’s most respected governing body, for 38 years, and he liked to be called the Father of Boxing, Don Jose or Mr President. The tiny Mexican certainly helped make boxing safer by drafting and pushing through some drastic changes to the way the sport works during his reign as President; last November, when he was in a coma at a hospital in Los Angeles, he was made the WBC’s President for Life at the organisation’s annual convention in Thailand.

Dark Trade: Lost in Boxing by Donald McRae

Book of the week: Dark Trade - Lost in Boxing by Donald McRae

This last week I started reading three recent boxing autobiographies or biographies, but didn’t get far with any of them. They weren’t awful, but weren’t good either – plodding, literally blow-by-blow accounts offering little insight into the moral, emotional and financial complexities of what Mike Tyson has memorably called “the hurt business”.

Nicola Adams: The Olympic boxing champion on fajitas, ice baths and being a drama queen

This year is going to be a big one I'll be competing in the Commonwealth Games, World Championships and European Championships; it's a full-on schedule. The goal is to get that gold at the Commonwealths in Glasgow. There's going to be some good competition, though. India's Mary Kom, who I boxed against in the Olympics, is a five-time world champion; she was tough when I last faced her and I'm sure she'll be equally tough this year. Trying to get another gold in Rio could top it all.
