    1978 WBC Championship Pendant Given to Larry Holmes by Don King. Two of the most significant figures from the glory days of 1970's Heavyweight Championship boxing are connected by this one of a kind gift from the controversial promoter Don King to the man who had just defeated Ken Norton in a split decision victory to claim the WBC crown. But make no mistake, the crown on this pendant isn't for Holmes, but for King, who favors the imagery for obvious reasons. The handcrafted fourteen karat gold pendant features the WBC logo at center, ringed by the words "Larry Holmes, World Champion, 6-9-78." Those are real diamonds and rubies set into the perimeter. Dimensions are 1.5x2". A truly unique relic with endless historical significance.
