Former WBC champion, Floyd Mayweather, was recently honored by the organization’s executive council by permanently placing his portrait picture among the exclusive group of boxers.
This was made official by WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman. Mayweather has held the WBC at 5 divisions while earning a 50-0 record partnered with 27 KOs.
Mayweather went on to say…
“I’m honored to have the WBC include my likeness on their Green and Gold belts for eternity,”
Mayweather’s 50-0 record speaks for itself. He was recently ranked as the greatest boxer of the last 25 years, and BoxRex has ranked him as the greatest boxer of all time.
He further shared his sentiments by saying…
“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.”
It is no coincidence that the WBC honors such accolades and titles by none other than adding his face onto the famous green championship belt. Joining him are the likes of Muhammid Ali and Mike Tyson, to name a few.
