Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall have an added incentive to be victorious on October 15. The winner will claim the new WBC ‘Elizabethan Belt.’ The belt is a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II after the original fight date was postponed due to a 10-day period of national mourning for the late British monarch following her passing two days before the initial September 10 event at The O2 in London, England.
WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán said, “Queen Elizabeth II will live forever in our hearts and minds. The boxing world unites to render homage to one of the greatest human beings that ever lived, here where boxing was born.”
these belts are released like new stamps

Yet another way to extort money from fighters!! Greedy bastards!!
Oh maybe the WBC will be defrocked first before Teresa of Avila put out of business completely. Womens boxing is on the docket to be banned. They live on there knees these days knowing they shouldn’t do that. The new king or whatever that was they don’t even believe in it anymore. Are you with Porfirio Diaz or Martin Castillo Garcia who ducked me like a coward in LaLa. There’s a new title belt. I’m taking Canelo to San Jose first then San Francisco Alcatraz island from where I will control the entire world the WBC don’t go!
I notice the good ole USofA get 1st billing!
If they’re going to make an Elizabethan belt, then why not a Victorian belt?
right in the pussy..
fuck womens “boxing”…never ever support this shit
fuck it…ONLY trans “women” boxing…having a girl with titties being crushed by Jim will be the end of this “sport”….fuckinDUMB
Why would any black person want that belt?
