Floyd Mayweather’s fight against Conor McGregor on Saturday has no championship on the line. It’s simply a fight between a boxing legend and a UFC star that will likely generate a record-breaking pay day for both fighters. That didn’t stop WBC from sweetening the pot, though.
During the Mayweather-McGregor press conference on Wednesday at MGM Grand, event officials unveiled “The Money Belt,” which will be presented to the winner of the fight. The belt is elaborate enough to make WWE jealous.
It is seriously insane.
The Money Belt has 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, 300 emeralds, 3 pounds of gold, and crocodile skin from an entire crocodile. All this for a belt that has absolutely no value by boxing standards but a whole lot of monetary value.
Mayweather is a heavy favorite in Saturday’s fight, and the belt already includes his “Money” nickname.
