Hublot bets on Floyd Mayweather
We are in 2015, yet there are many to call the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao the fight of the century. We will see how this match will go down, for sure it captured the imagination of many. There is no media outlet that would not cower it, from financial news behemoths to highly respected newspapers and now even watch blogs.
Hublot placed its bets on 10-time World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather by hosting a press gathering to announce their sponsorship of the future Hall of Famer for his highly anticipated match-up tonight.
On this occasion Mayweather, the undefeated champion, was presented with nothing less than King Power WBC Full Pavé with Emeralds. In case you’re wondering, that is a 48 mm gold beast, covered with 248 diamonds for 2.04cts and a King Gold bezel set with 48 baguettes-cut Tsavorites.
Hublot’s relationship with the World Boxing Council began in 2012 when the Swiss brand combined its unapologetic watchmaking style with the world of hard punches. This synergy resulted in the creation of 12 unique watches, dedicated and signed by twelve legendary boxers. These timepieces were auctioned and raised over $1 million for the charitable initiatives of the World Boxing Council, including the beginning of the retired boxer’s pension and emergency fund in over 40 countries around the world.
