The World Boxing Council has designed a special belt for the winner of the huge showdown which takes place in a couple of days’ time in Las Vegas. Known as the WBC ‘Money’ belt; it is comprised of a staggering 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, 300 emeralds and roughly 1.5 pounds of 24-karat gold. It’s almost as if the pair weren’t already involved in a multi-million dollar showdown!
WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman, had the following to say when quizzed on the belt:
“In order to celebrate this event between the WBC hero and the UFC hero, Conor McGregor, the WBC has created the Money Belt. 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.”
