The World Boxing Council’s famous green and gold belt has undergone several modifications in its 37 years, and the latest is the inclusion of Kazakhstan’s impressive flag.

The WBC belt has being represented by the best and most spectacular champions in history including: Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Julio Cesar Chavez, Larry Holmes, Vitali Klitschko, Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns, Oscar de la Hoya and Floyd Mayweather.

Now as a mark of respect to Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin, who’s brought so much honor to his nation, the Kazakh colors will also adorn the much admired belt.

An apt and timely inclusion, as the WBC middleweight belt will contested on March 18 when Gennady Golovkin defends his title against the capable, determined and also hard hitting Daniel Jacobs.
