Mayweather was overjoyed with the WBC’s decision to add his picture to all of their world title belts.
“I’m honored to have the WBC include my likeness on their green and gold belts for eternity,” said Mayweather.
“I remember the first time I won a WBC belt and saw the photos of the great champions on there and always wanted to be there too. It really is a dream come true for me to be alongside the great Ali , and WBC founder Don Jose, and to be recognized by them for my contributions to the organization and the sport. I am beyond grateful to receive this honor.”
Floyd’s upcoming bout with YouTuber Logan Paul raised a lot of eyebrows when it was first announced but you can be sure Mayweather will be laughing all the way to the bank in the aftermath.
The bank notification after his inevitable dismantling of Paul might not be the most exciting happening in early 2021 for Mayweather though, with the WBC moving to award him its highest honour.
