WBC CREATES NEW CHAMPIONSHIP BELT FOR 'CATCH WEIGHTS'!

PhilBoxing.com




Jose Sulaiman, President of the WBC, is announcing the institution of a new WBC green and gold belt to be called WBC Diamond Championship, a honorary championship exclusively for fights between elite boxers.

This new implementation has been voted in favor by the WBC Board of Governors based in an absolute unanimous voting, and will actively participate to keep boxing as great as ever with new and exciting formats for the fans.

Boxing is changing; it has a heavy influence from television and promoters are looking for highly interesting and passionate battles for the benefit of the boxing fans of the world.

The WBC believes that this belt will play a very important role in modern boxing, as the fights between elite boxers called “catch weight” fights, have not been a complete success, due to the fact that the advertising is only done for fans to know who is the best between two fighters and nothing is at stake, or a bout for a belt that has no reputation at all.

The WBC will propose that the promotion renders homage to the two greatest fighters of such division, as they will be showcased in the belt.

This WBC Diamond Belt is being manufactured using the same design as the traditional belt but the materials will include 18 karat gold fusion, 598 diamonds, 196 emeralds, 6 rubies and 150 swarowsky semi-precious stones.

Jose Sulaiman, finished stating that he is very proud of the step taken by the WBC, as it will be in benefit of improving boxing, in benefit of the boxing fans of the world, of promoters, television and everybody involved in the sport of boxing. (PR)
