While Naoto Fukasawa designed the Tang Prize's pretty medal, Dave Millican has also been producing gold-colored metallic items worn by champions. And he turns out some 60 to 70 per year. But these aren't neck-worn medals: Tennessee-based Dave Millican Belts produces championship belts for the WWF, UFC, UWF and a host of other fighting leagues.
"I really got into it when I was around 12 years old," Millican writes, "making them out of cardboard & anything else I could find around the house." But after meeting former pro wrestler turned championship belt-maker Reggie Parks, the Arizona-based "King of Belts," Millican learned to kick his production skills up to pro level. Having now been in business for over 20 years, Millican has produced belts worn by The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H and more.
