WCCLBS drives its focus as much on boxing development, as it does on the entertainment and spectator engagement. The Reality Show and the Event is anticipated to maximize Global Boxing viewership and it will drastically increase the commercial aspect of the Sport, that in return, will benefit the entire Boxing community.
Worldwide, professional boxing has suffered considerable decline in the popularity stakes. By and large, other sporting codes have introduced necessary changes in their respective codes, to mitigate the crisis. Characteristically perhaps boxing has been slow and lethargic in its response to changing patterns and the evolution of sport.
- Cricket has introduced the popular T20 series as a response to dwindling spectator numbers.
- In rugby, the Rugby Sevens tournaments have brought back the sparkle and excitement into the sport.
Consequently the numbers of television viewers has increased tenfold.
One of the dominant discourses in the world of boxing today is the impact of technology in boxing. We have the abilities and the capacities to become aggressive catalysts in the continent and abroad. Carpe Diem (sieze the day)
“This world is changing enormously. In any position in a company you need to work very hard on learning new skills every day, but you also need to unlearn some of the old skills from the past.” Paul Polman renowned Dutch Businessman, goes on to say that we are living in a changing world. A new world is being born and we need new ideas, new ways of seeing, new relationships and new paradigms.
WCCLBS embrace change and have the vision to apply new ideas, new ways and new relationships in our quest to uplift the sport of boxing and to play a major role in ongoing development, growth and support of the sport globally.
Who we Are
Since as far back as 2012, we spent an unbelievable amount of research, time and resources, in their quest to create fantastic new combat sport concepts that is geared up for maximum spectator entertainment and non-stop action. It opened the doors for extreme sport reality tv shows like none other, and so 2016 saw the birth of the production & Reality/Sport TV series LAST FIGHTER STANDING.
The producer of this big budget production, Michael Bender, left no stone unturned and was extremely fortunate to have worked with legendary martial arts hall of fame & Hollywood star, MICHAEL JAI WHITE, as the show presenter. Together they took the South African viewers on a journey into the LIVES of the participating fighters across various martial arts platforms.
During 2016, Last Fighter Standing (season 1) was the most watched reality TV show across all channels in South Africa with over 7, 5 million viewers, and a global social media reach exceeding 6, 6 million, delivering a WORLD CLASS production and setting new standards in Showbiz Entertainment Globally!

Sadly only South African viewers got to see the Last Fighter Standing reality sport tv show as broadcasted on the 2nd largest SA TV Channel E.TV .
- WCCLBS presents the concept LAST BOXER STANDING as an antidote to rekindle, recapture and catalyse the hitherto inert sport of boxing.
- This idea is the brainchild of an experienced group of individuals who have been seriously aggrieved by the seeming demise of their beloved sport.
- In this regard the entity proposes to work hand in hand in glove with WBC and prospective partners as yourself, in order to achieve the desired goal.
WCCLBS is a new Global elimination structure revolutionary concept with a real punch that brings together clubs, coaches and fighters globally in search for the greatest Boxer on earth, representing their clubs, countries and genders. With equal opportunities for male and female athletes, this event will create new iconic boxing legends, inspiring men, women and children around the world.
Any club from anywhere in the world can enter their best professional boxers to represent their club and country. Boxing clubs from around the globe will play an eminent part of this great concept in our quest to create a platform where the destiny of the boxers are in their own hands. It will pave the way to the first ever LAST BOXER STANDING WORLD CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP!
With this new unified focus, we envision the entire Boxing industry to work together as a globally driven structure, celebrating legends like Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and alike…. those boxers that drove this industry and inspired many athletes, and giving rise to NEW boxing talent.
During December 2016 we visited the US where we met with the WBC President, Mauricio Sulaimán Saldívar, who expressed sincere interest.
We since secured the full support of Boxing South Africa (BSA) who endorse our plans as the SA Boxing Sanctioning body. We also enjoy the support of some past and current boxing talent i.e. Chris van Heerden, Shane “Sugar” Mosley and Brian Mitchell.
