The 47th annual convention of the WBC (World Boxing Council) will be held in Jeju as scheduled from Nov. 1- 7, 2009, despite flu concerns. The Jeju government has denied rumors that the international boxing gathering will be cancelled; despite the fact that a number of other upcoming events and local festivals have been cancelled or scaled back due to the spread of swine flu. More than 2,500 people from over 100 nations, including WBC members and their families, are expected to arrive on the island for the boxing community’s week-long gathering. North Korean representatives are also anticipated to be among the attendees, which raises hopes that the 7-day gathering could help thaw inter-Korean tension. On May 17, 2009, WBC President Jose Sulaiman paid a visit to Jeju Island to oversee final preparations for the WBC’s 47th annual convention. In 2006 Jeju Island was chosen as the venue to play host to the international event. The World Boxing Council was formed in 1963 and is based in Mexico.
