The winner of the 'Money Fight' will, of course, take home the 'Money Belt'.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will meet on Saturday in Las Vegas in the richest fight in history.

Both men will walk away with cheques for over £100million ( $161million AU) from a fight that will generate more than five times that in revenue.

And a special one-off belt has been created for the fighter who prevails.

Made by one of the four boxing sanctioning bodies, the World Boxing Council (WBC), it is made up of 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, 300 emeralds and 1.5kg of solid 24 carat gold.

And the strap is made of alligator leather.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said: "This is an event that has captured the event of the world.

"I am here to be in the corner of the boxer. This is an event when two sports meet in the ring with boxing rules.

"The WBC has had in Floyd Mayweather the most loyal champion. He conquered five world titles in five divisions.

"And in order to celebrate this event, the WBC has created the Money Belt."
