Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are to slog it out in a fight for a belt worth $1.25m.
Information has it that a Security Vault and Armored vehicles manned by Policemen in a 24-hour match guard on the belt that is to be awarded to the winner of the match between the duo.
It was slated to hold Saturday in Las Vegas. The belt was made in Mexico with gold and 3000 emeralds. It valued $US1m($A1.25m) dollars. On completion, the federal agents picked it up from the workshop in the Mexico City, suburb of Ecapetec to a vault at the police headquarters, a place it was kept for four days under a permanent watch.
An Armored vehicle took it to a forum in Mexico City on April 21. ,from there, the Mexican official, Mauricio Sulaiman, president of the World Boxing Council (WBC) presented it to the public.
It was alleged that the belt was taken back to the vault after the event, because police did not specify, maybe for security reason.
These are the words of the Mexican Police:
Finally, on Saturday April 25, an operation was carried out to take it to the boarding area at Mexico City International Airport .
It was handed over to Sulaiman at the airport, who later took it with him to the United States, for presentation in New York ahead of the fight.
