The 12 winning bidders will receive their watch from the fighter himself on a staged ring set at the luxurious Bellagio Hotel, surrounded by more than 300 guests.

"Hublot feels proud and privileged to have joined the fight of the legends of this great sport,” said Jean-Claude Biver, chairman of Hublot.

“These twelve unique pieces reflect the fusion between the fierce competitors of the historic sport of boxing and the accomplishments of 450 years of Swiss watch making art," he added.
