The WBC, also known as the World Boxing Council, is doing an awesome tribute to the memory of Kobe Bryant and 13-year-old daughter following the passing of those two and seven others in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26th.
The belt they created for them is embellished with purple and gold colors as homage to the late Los Angeles Lakers star’s jersey which also features portraits of the father-daughter duo, and the number 8 and 24.
A source told FightNews.com that there are reportedly “plans to present the belt to Kobe’s family soon.”
While traveling to a youth basketball tournament at the Lakers star’s Mamba Sports Academy facility, the helicopter the group was traveling on went down in the hills of Calabasas, California on a day where visibility in the air was minimal.
A memorial for Bryant and Gianna was held Monday, Feb. 24 at the Staples Center.
