WBC Makes Mayan Belt For Canelo-Jacobs

As is tradition for the WBC, they’ve unveiled another special commemorative title ahead of Canelo Alvarez’ WBC middleweight title defense on May 4th.

Alvarez will take on Daniel Jacobs at the T-Mobile Arena in a unification fight, and WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman commissioned a title to honor the fight which takes place on Cinco De Mayo Weekend.


“It’s a very special work,” Sulaiman said in an interview with Fight Hub. “It’s a piece of art. It’s a gift that Mexico and the WBC give to the world because it commemorates the Mayan culture in a special day, which is May the 5th, and September 16 — these are the two biggest holidays of our country and it has been a tradition that the biggest fights take place in these two weekends. So the WBC started to do a special commemorative belt for these fights…

“It’s a very complex story behind the Mayan culture. There are so many unknown variables still. [The belt] has the jaguar and the warrior and it represents greatness. So this belt itself is a tribute to the Mayan gods and we are just very proud to have produced this and give the world a piece of art.”
