Watches News by Hublot : Hublot, the famous Swiss watchmaker, and WBC, the World Boxing Council, co-hosted an unforgettable evening celebrating its continued partnership with an exclusive 'Night of Champions' gala dinner and live auction at the iconic Encore Hotel to benefit the "WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund."

"Once again, we have the great honor and privilege of teaming up with the WBC and iconic boxing champions for a historic evening here in Las Vegas! We are proud to have raised over 1 million dollars tonight to benefit the WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund and celebrate the fusion of world-renowned competitors and Swiss watchmaking. This collaboration continues the brand's long history in support of the noble art of boxing."
- Ricardo Guadalupe
CEO, HUBLOT

"Today is one of the happiest days of my life, my gratitude goes to Hublot, Jean Claude Biver and Ricardo Guadalupe for joining the WBC in the creation of this Boxers Fund to support our past and present heroes who have fallen in financial hardship."
- Mauricio Sulaimán
President, WBC

The historical 'Night of Champions' kicked off with a red carpet and cocktail reception for VIPs, media, clients, and legendary boxing champions. Attendees were seated for a formal dinner in the presence of some of the greatest boxing living legends including: Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Julio César Chávez, Roberto Duran, Zou Shiming, Thomas Hearns, George Foreman, Oscar De la Hoya, Vitali Klitschko, Jeff Fenech and Hozumi Hasegawa. Additional celebrities attended to support the initiative, including musician Carlos Santana and Mexican TV personality, Jacky Bracamontes.

The WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund, established in 2012 in conjunction with Hublot, aims to protect athletes' safety, health and well-being. Since its creation, the Fund has raised and distributed over $1.2 million dollars to retired boxers with financial and medical hardships for housing, living expenses, and medical costs. Hublot demonstrates a continued commitment to the WBC in 2019 by auctioning off one-of-a-kind packages with all proceeds going to the Fund. The unique packages included the chance to get in the ring at the Canelo vs. Jacobs Fight the next day, throwing the first pitch for one of the top MLB teams, and a private boxing lesson from a WBC Heavyweight Champion. Additionally, a raffle and silent auction featured exclusive items such as the last known glove signed by Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, a golf club signed by Dustin Johnson, as well as a pair of shoes signed by Kobe Bryant. The evening was a knockout success as Hublot and the WBC raised 1.2 million dollars, all of which will go to support the José Sulaimán Boxers Fund!

In celebration of Hublot's partnership with the WBC, the Swiss watchmaker has created The Big Bang Unico WBC in two styles which feature a green alligator strap that embodies the unique design of the iconic championship belt, which is the highest form of recognition a boxer can be awarded. The first model features a fully polished green ceramic case with a matte black skeleton dial. The second style is distinctly Hublot incorporating 18k gold with the green ceramic into the case.

All of the boxing champions were gifted the Big Bang Unico WBC in green ceramic.

HUBLOT
