SPECIAL WBC MAYAN BELT FOR CANELO VS JACOBS WINNER
(PRESS RELEASE) This is the WBC special belt that Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs will be fighting for on May 4th!
As part of the tradition, the WBC puts into contest a special belt on the May 5 and September 16 fights. This time we pay tribute to the Mayan culture.
The Mayan belt, made with the traditional green leather, gold and jade, represents the leadership of the jaguar warriors trying to conquer honor and recognition from Kukulcan, the Mayan deity that represents air and water, two of the most fluid elements in nature; such as the dance that takes place inside the boxing ring.
This belt includes 4 elements represented in the left side: “Warriors”, “Jaguar”, “Leader” and “Fame”; while Kukulkan is represented on the right side.
On the belt buckle, the Mayan calendar can be found, a very important symbol with evidence that it was used throughout all of Mesoamerica.
