Granted, it probably should have taken place years ago, but it's still a big deal.

Everything about the fight screams showbiz - the promotion, the setting (MGM Grand in Las Vegas), the amount of money involved, - so it is perhaps fitting that the belt that Mayweather and Pacquiao will fight for should follow suit.

The belt cost over $1million, it's encrusted with emeralds and, with all due respect to Manny Pacquiao, it's probably the type of flashy thing that Floyd Mayweather would wear regardless of whether or not he has to win a fight to wear it.

In any case, we won't have to wait too long to find out who'll be brandishing it triumphantly around the ring on May 2
