The World Series of Fighting has unveiled their championship belt ahead of their inaugural welterweight title fight between Steve Carl and Josh Burkman at WSOF 6. The belt will be awarded at the conclusion of Saturday’s main event in Miami. WSOF officials announced the new belt via press release.
Custom-designed by A.J. LaFons, the World Series of Fighting championship belt features more than 43 carats of genuine ruby, diamond, emerald, sapphire and red garnet and weighs in at a total of 10 pounds, 7 ounces.
“We wanted to make sure our championship belt was reflective of our commitment to excellence,” World Series of Fighting President Way Sefo said. “We’ve been working in the background for more than a year on the design of this belt, and we feel like we got it right. On Saturday night, I feel confident that either Josh Burkman or Steve Carl will be proud of the belt they receive as recognition of their accomplishment as our first-ever welterweight champion.”
WSOF 6 will take place on the campus of the University of Miami on October 26. The October 26 NBC Sports Network lineup will be headlined by a WSOF welterweight championship pairing between Josh Burkman and Steve Carl. The card will be co-headlined by the fast-rising Marlon Moraes taking on his fellow prospect in Carson Beebe.
