On Wednesday, World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman revealed the custom made “Money Belt” that will be awarded to the winner of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match that takes place on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

Though both men have their share of accolades with Mayweather having retired back in September 2015 as a welterweight boxing champion (147 lb.), and McGregor currently laying claim to the UFC lightweight title (155 lb.), their mega fight was not booked to be for any official belt.

Instead, Sulamain introduced the “Money Belt” at the final press conference before fight night, which can be seen below (courtesy of Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times):

The Mayweather-McGregor fight will be contested at a weight of 154 pounds.

Sulaiman described the belt as follows:

“This belt has 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, 300 emeralds, 1.5 kilograms of solid, 24-karat gold, and alligator leather that comes from Italy.”
