The Money Belt
Just a few hours ago the promoters of the historic super fight between McGregor and Mayweather and World Boxing Council president revealed the custom made belt, and dubbed it “The Money Belt”. Raising the stakes in this one of a kind MMA vs Boxing collision even more.
Which is fitting since this fight is between two of the highest paid fighters in the world of combat sport. Mayweather has dubbed his whole team and brand as ‘Money Mayweather’ and ‘Team Money’. While Conor McGregor cheekily calls his brand ‘The Mac Life’.
The belt has an outer layer of flags of WBC competing nations, with the letter W, B and C centered in middle. The names of the two contenders of this epic battle are just under the commissions' names. Everything about this belt screams money since it is made out of 3360 diamonds, 600 sapphires and 300 emeralds over 1.5 kilograms of solid 24—karat gold. Even the leather of this title was imported from Italy and is alligator leather.
This belt is not a real title and is not going to be competed for ever again however you can see why the two fighters will be happy to kill each other for this belt and the bragging rights alone. Whatever the outcome we all will get to see one of these fighters wear this belt at the end of the match for the pride of their respective fighting disciplines.
