Boxing is the oldest documented sport and dates back to 6000 BC. “Boxing is the art of fighting with the heart while using the fists“ explained WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman. Hublot has taken the fervour and art of the sport and fused it with the passion and history of the watch world.
CEO Ricardo Guadalupe brilliantly hosted and brought this powerful, legendary evening to life. It was Mauricio Sulaiman who darted in and out of the ring and highlighted each boxer’s efforts.
In order to continue this legendary association, today the "WORLD BOXING COUNCIL” Special Edition CLASSIC FUSION CHRONOGRAPH watch was presented, demonstrating one of the main characteristics of Hublot watches: different-coloured carbon fibre. For this special edition, a racing green colour was chosen. It is limited to 50 numbered models and features both logos and hands in gold.
On the night, the gold belt went to the boxing champions gathered together for this legendary event, each of whom made handprints on special plaques which will be auctioned in the near future in a partnership between the WBC and Hublot to raise money and pursue Hublot’s clear mission to help different charitable foundations with causes reflecting the values and vision of the Swiss watchmaking brand.
