Mayweather Feels Honored With WBC's 'Supreme' Title

Las Vegas - Ten-Time World Champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather can add another honor to his growing list of accolades as the World Boxing Council (WBC) has named him WBC Supreme Champion. Representatives from the 165 countries that form the WBC unanimously voted to bestow Mayweather with this unique award following his many years as a WBC Champion complemented by his 2013 back-to-back wins against former WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero and former WBC Super Welterweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez.

"I am honored that the WBC has named me Supreme Champion," said Mayweather. "It's a blessing to have won several WBC titles throughout my career. Being recognized by the boxing community means a lot, so I want to thank the WBC and its members who voted for me."

It's been a busy and productive year of ring successes and honors for Mayweather. In addition to being named WBC Supreme Champion, Mayweather was awarded the 2013 ESPN for Best Fighter and Fighter of the Year by the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.

He also set and broke several records. In February, he entered into a groundbreaking pay-per-view deal with Showtime Networks Inc. and its parent company CBS Corporation to comprehensively promote six fights over 30 months. Most recently, his September 14 fight against Canelo Alvarez set the record as the highest-grossing pay-per-view of all time with more than $150 million in U.S. revenue alone, surpassing the previous record of $136 million generated by Mayweather vs. Oscar De La Hoya in 2007.

"2013 has been a big year for The Money Team," Mayweather continued. "It feels good to be where I currently am in my career. I am looking forward to 2014 being another exciting year for me. I appreciate the recognition and all of the support my fans shown me over the years."

The WBC will hold a special event in Las Vegas to formally give Mayweather his award in the near future.

[QUOTE=Beercules]If he actually did fight Canelo at 154 then the critics would be silenced. " I don't fight at catch weights, I want guys where they are comfortable at, if he's comfortable at 154 then we will fight at 154 " - Floyd Mayweather Jr.[/QUOTE] The way PAC fought a non54lber at 5...
