On September 29, 2012, the world’s 12 greatest boxers supported and celebrated the inauguration of the World Boxing Council pension fund; which will provide monthly pensions to many former champions from around the world currently living in difficult situation.

Among the boxers who took part were Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Sugar Ray Leonard and George Foreman. Don King was also present.

To mark the occasion 12 unique watches from Swiss luxury brand Hublot were auctioned. The auction took place at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, USA, and the 12 winning bidders received their watch directly from one of the boxing legends.

All proceeds from the auction will go to the World Boxing Council Pension fund including the retired boxer’s pension and emergency fund in over 40 countries around the World.

The watches replicate the design of each of the fighters’ championship belts and are made from 18k king gold, black ceramic and titanium. Each piece presents unique boxing features, such as special three minute counter, the World Boxing symbol on the back case, and the engraved signature of the specific boxing champion.
