Default Does anybody else think that perhaps this is not such a good idea?

Timepieces are watches...right?

Talk about letting the fox into the chook pen

Don't even think it Geoff

I think it's all happening today...err...Any word on how many of the watches made it to auction?

12 BOXING LEGENDS TO GRACE HUBLOT TIMEPIECES AUCTION SEP 29 IN LAS VEGAS TO INAUGURATE BOXER'S PENSION FUND

PhilBoxing.com
Wed, 05 Sep 2012

Boxing legends Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, Mike Tyson, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr, Ken Norton, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Lennox Lewis, Roberto Duran, Oscar de la Hoya, Jeff Fenech and Azumah Nelson will grace the auction of rare Hublot timepieces at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas on Sep. 29.

Each of the 12 timepiece will bear the engraved signature of a boxing champion. The proceeds of the auction will establish a boxer's pension fund, according to WBC chairman Jose Sulaiman.

What's not to like about a Boxer's Pension Fund ?
As long as it's transparent , well audited and no officials have got their snouts in the trough.
Should be mandatory. All the orgs. should get behind it.
Long overdue.

Maybe a pocket piece with a chain attached would be a better idea.
