As just about every sports fan on planet Earth will know by now, the two superstars are fighting in a glamour bout at Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena in what could easily turn out to be the biggest fight in combat sports history.
The worldwide pay-per-view records are expected to be shattered, but given McGregor has never fought a professional boxing match before – and Mayweather forfeited his titles when he retired two years ago – there hasn’t been any belts up for grabs – until now.
At tonight’s final pre-match press conference, the Money Belt was unveiled to the world, consisting of 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires and 160 emeralds:

Not too shabby, eh?
Given Mayweather’s unofficial middle name is money, you’d think it should belong to him, right?
What do you think of the money belt?
