On September 8th, the Brooklyn Barclays Center in New York will be the scenario setting for a fascinating and exacting fight between Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter for the vacant WBC welterweight title on the line. Showtime will televise.
This contest promises to be truly memorable. An intriguing added bonus is that the winner will present his own Father with the WBC Trainer belt, because Danny and Shawn are invariably prepared for Fight Night by their Dads.
The World Boxing Council is in the process of regulating the presence of relatives in the fighter’s corner, but in this case, because both fathers/trainers have fundamentally helped their sons in very successful boxing careers, so their presence in the respective corners is allowed.
The WBC has designed and developed a special belt, inspired in the traditional towel worn at all times by boxing trainers.
The winner will not only hold aloft the magnificent and prestigious green and gold belt. One Dad will return home with the newly formed Trainer`s Belt.
