The World Boxing Council’s belt for the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor has been revealed, and it’s insane.
“The Money Belt” is fit for a king, and should be a nice accessory for whoever wins the epic bout Saturday night.
The specifications of the belt, according to the WBC, are as follows:
The WBC also released a statement praising the success Mayweather has had throughout his boxing career.
The statement reads in part:
FLOYD IS THE ONLY FIGHTER TO EVER WIN WBC CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 5 DIFFERENT WEIGHT CATEGORIES AND DONE SO BY DEFEATING THE BEST OF THE BEST IN EACH DIVISION SINCE HE CAPTURED THE WBC SUPERFEATHERWEIGHT TITLE IN OCTOBER 1998. THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER HE HAS FOUGHT AND WON 25 WBC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHTS AND HAS BEEN THE MOST LOYAL AMBASSADOR OF THE GREEN AND GOLD. …
FLOYD MAYWEATHER REPRESENTS BOXING AND HAS COME OUT OF RETIREMENT TO FACE CONOR MCGREGOR THE SUPERSTAR OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS WHO REPRESENTS THE UFC. THE UFC HAS STOOD BEHIND CONNOR AND THE WBC STANDS FIRM IN SUPPORT OF FLOYD.
We shouldn’t be surprised the belt is such an incredible and lavish display of wealth. Nothing less would be expected out of McGregor and Mayweather.
Now we all just have to wait until Saturday night to see who will leave the ring as a champion.
