WBC unveils 2022 Freedom belts

In 2021, the WBC created a special belt: “The Freedom Belt” to commemorate Juneteenth Day, which emacipated slavery in the State of Texas. 
Juneteenth is annually celebrated as a holiday on June 19th throughout the United States. This emancipation proclamation originated, due to the announcement of General Order number three, by Union Army General Gordon Granger, on June 19th 1865, applying to the State of Texas. The Juneteenth Freedom Belt, is part of the historic celebration for fundamental rights of Emancipation underlining the fact that all children, women and men are born equal.
The WBC Freedom belt 2022 was going to be on the line in the Jermall Charlo vs. Maciej Sulecki, scheduled for Saturday, June 18 at the Toyota Center in Houston, but unfortunately had to be postponed due to a back injury Charlo suffered during his preparation. 
The WBC Freedom belt will be on the line in Jermall Charlo’s next bout, to be announced soon.
