Floyd and Manny are fighting for more green than they thought on May 2nd … ’cause TMZ Sports has the first look at the WBC belt the two men will be vying for … and it’s as emerald as Oz.
The World Boxing Council didn’t just want any old championship belt to be handed out to the winner of this historic bout … so they decided to commission a special prize for the victor.
Two belts were made … an “onyx” version and an “emerald” version — and a fan vote on the WBC website last week determined which belt will be delivered to the winner.
It was a tight contest but emerald took it with 53% of the vote … although both belts are said to be worth nearly $1 MILLION … so there was no real loser.
Except of course the guy that gets his face knocked off on the 2nd.
Actually he kinda wins too ($100 million bucks).[via]
