Given the historic significance of Juneteenth, we’re told the WBC wanted to commemorate the day as part of the weekend’s festivities by presenting the unique belts to Floyd, as well as Robert Smith, James McNair, and Deon Taylor for their contributions to society.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaimán spoke with TMZ Sports on the move … saying “Juneteenth is a national holiday and Floyd Mayweather is the best representative for success and glory through hard work and dedication.”

Mayweather is set to return to the ring on June 11th against the grandson of former American crime boss John Gotti at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida.
