Sulaiman to create unique WBC title for Mayweather v Pacquiao clash
WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman says that a very special exquisite belt will be created for the winner to hold aloft, following the May 2nd historic MEGAFIGHT between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
“For this special recognition I would like to have emeralds or platinum, but everything will be defined during the next weeks. This is because of the magnitude of the event, which will be broadcast via TV networks globally.”
Mauricio highlighted that this bout is one of the most important throughout the entire boxing history, with a groundswell of anticipation in every part of the World. And both fighters must defend that prestige inside the ring, as there will be a great deal at stake during the bout.
“It came in a good moment and it will be an emotive event. Both are obviously putting their legacy at stake, to prove who’s the best, satisfying an enormous created expectance. They are also competing to be considered one of the best 10 fighters in the entire boxing history.”
With tickets being as sought after as gold dust, Mauricio commented:
“It is a big shame that tickets are staying with wealthy people. However, boxing fans will have the opportunity to watch the fight via TV. Economic interests are involved with resulting high prices.”
