McGregor and Mayweather are probably the two most ostentatious sportsmen in the world right now. The build-up & press conferences over the past few weeks have seen them both strutting back and forth like a couple of peacocks on heat. Therefore, its only right that the winner of tomorrow’s fight gets a fittingly elaborate prize (besides the mounds of cash of course).

Unveiled at the latest press conference, “The Money belt” is littered with a total of 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, 300 emeralds and 1.5 kilograms of 24-karat gold, all set on a green Italian alligator leather base. Reported to have cost more than $1 Million, the belt isn’t tied specifically to a boxing title which is usually the case, so the winner will get to keep it forever as a reminder of their victory.
