The MILLION DOLLAR championship belt that will be awarded to the winner of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao has its own private security detail that will escort it from Mexico to Vegas ... TMZ Sports has learned.
A rep for the World Boxing Council tells us ... the belt -- which is encrusted with more than 3,000 real miniature emeralds -- will be unveiled on Monday in Mexico ... at WBC headquarters.
After it makes its public debut, the belt will travel to the MGM Grand -- escorted by the President of the World Boxing Council and 2 private security guards.
Ultimately, the belt will be handed over to MGM officials -- who will safeguard the belt in a special case until the night of the fight.
Who gets the belt after that? That's entirely up to Manny and Floyd.
