Amir Khan vs. Neeraj Goyat: WBC Reveal The "Pearl Belt"

By World Boxing Council

The World Boxing Council is proud to be part of the Amir Khan vs. Neeraj Goyat fight, which will take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on July 12, 2019.

Amir Khan met with Jose Sulaiman in Dallas, Texas on November 2010 and Amir shared his dream with our late President, which has always been to make a statement through boxing for peace in the world.

Pope Francis entrusted the WBC to develop BoxVal (Boxing with Values), a program in which boxing is used throughout the world to teach values to trainers and boxers, as well as society at large with a wide diversity of activations.


Amir Khan participated in the first ever BoxVal Program when he fought Saul Canelo Alvarez in a fight which was built as Fighting for Peace.  Canelo Alvarez, a Catholic, vs. Amir Khan, a Muslim entered into the ring with a message for peace and planted the Olive tree together during such event.

The WBC is proud of Amir Khan representing Pakistan and the U.K. and Neeraj Goyat representing India.

The WBC has prepared a beautiful belt which will be presented as a commemorative trophy to the winner of this fight, as a sign of peace while developing boxing in the two great counties of Pakistan and India.

It's just a meaningless honorary belt designed to capitalize on heightened nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan. It could draw a ton of viewers and money from the region, if handled and promoted well. Like an India vs. Pakistan cricket…

The WBC is selling any integrity it had left away. Are they a sanctioning body or a belt maker?
