Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were given a glimpse of the WBC emerald winner’s belt when it was unveiled in Mexico City.
The emerald green, diamond encrusted belt was unveiled by World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman who was joined by former world heavyweight champion Larry Holmes.
Current WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson was also on hand as the $1million creation was put on show.
WHY IS THIS BELT SO SPECIAL?
Costing upwards of $1million, this WBC world champions belt features images of former WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman, Mayweather, Pacquiao and legendary heavyweight Muhammad Ali along the strap.
Boxing fans worldwide voted for the traditional emerald green belt, which will be handed to the winner of the mega-fight, over an Onyx belt of a more unusual design earlier this year.
In a statement the WBC said: ‘This exquisite masterpiece is especially designed by the World Boxing Council, for a unique bout that is already gracing the pages of boxing history.
‘In order to appropriately recognise the winner of this titanic and epic event on May 2, emeralds have triumphed.
‘The World Boxing Council is very grateful to the multitude of fans that participated in this process, voting on our web page, to choose the historic belt Mayweather or Pacquiao will proudly possess.’
Meanwhile, Pacquiao was again spotted training in public as he took to the streets of Los Angeles to work on his fitness ahead of his showdown with Mayweather.
The Filipino showed off his technique by shadow boxing before taking part in an abdominal workout.
Pacquiao looked in high spirits as he continued to gear up for his mega-fight against Mayweather which takes place in Las Vegas on May 2.
