Fittingly, as part of the Cinco de Mayo Celebrations reserved for clashes involving elite superstar Mexican champions, the creation of a Mexican artisan masterpiece symbolically depicting eighteen centuries of the Mayan Culture in Year of the Maya, has been brilliantly devised by master craftsman Cesar Menchaca and his team of eight, involving thirty days of round the clock non stop work. 

He and WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman presented it against the backdrop of  Mexico City`s Food Market.

The spectacular was also attended by Sports Minister and silver medal Olympian sprinter Ana Gabriela Guevara and Carlos Padilla the President of Mexico`s Olympic Committee

[QUOTE=Death_Adder;19686892]Jacobs doesn't have to accept it. It's not the official WBC championship belt. If he doesn't like it he could request one with a KFC logo on it, a couple of watermelon emblems.[/QUOTE]
