The winner of the fight of the century between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather will receive a special edition WBC belt picked by the fans: an emerald green belt encrusted with diamonds worth up to $1 million.
The WBC let the fans vote between the emerald green belt and an unusual onyx designed belt, but the more traditional belt took the majority of the fans with 53 percent.

The WBC decided to commemorate the winner with a special bonus besides the $180 million Mayweather will make and the $120 million Pacquiao will earn just for being a part of the fight.
“This exquisite masterpiece is especially designed by the World Boxing Council, for a unique bout that is already gracing the pages of boxing history,” the WBC said in a statement. “In order to appropriately recognize the winner of this titanic and epic event on May 2, emeralds have triumphed.”
The only thing left to find out is who will be wearing the belt after the fight.
