TMT

Floyd Mayweather has been handed the Lifetime Achievement Award at the WBC Annual Convention in Kunming, China.

Mayweather was the recipient of what Boxing News 24 described as “the highest honour ever presented to a boxer.”

The ceremony also heralded Saul “Canelo” Alvarez after his brilliant 2015 and British heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua, as noted by the WBC’s official website.

Mayweather hung up his gloves after fighting Andre Berto last September. It saw the American end his career with an immaculate record of 49 wins from 49 fights, putting him alongside the great Rocky Marciano and, in the eyes of many, among the best competitors the sweet science has seen.
