On 01 May 2015, luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot had the honor of hosting a press gathering with 10-Time World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather to announce their sponsorship of the future Hall of Famer for his highly anticipated match-up against Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
To mark the occasion, Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe presented a King Power WBC Full Pavé with Emeralds to the undefeated champion, who will also wear the Hublot brand name on his boxing trunks on Saturday night. In line with Hublot’s “First, Different, Unique” brand ethos, Mayweather has previously never had a brand adorn his boxing shorts. The Presentation took place minutes before the boxer took the stage for the highly touted Weigh In.
In addition to the presentation and sponsorship of Mayweather, and to celebrate this weekend’s much anticipated fight, Hublot is also hosting a one-of-a-kind boxing experience at the Hublot Boutique in Caesar’s Palace. In an official Hublot interactive ‘boxing ring’ and carpet, guests were invited to take a photo with Hublot-branded boxing props, including a robe, boxing gloves and championship belt.
Hublot’s legendary relationship with the World Boxing Council, the governing body of the global sport, began in 2012 when Hublot took the fervor and art of the sport and fused it with the passion and history of the watch world. 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.
