Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is an American professional boxer. He is currently undefeated as a professional and is a five-division world champion, having won ten world titles and the lineal championship in four different weight classes.
With no endorsements whatsoever to his name, he is the world’s best-paid athlete and Floyd Mayweather certainly knows how to spend his hard-earned wealth. With Boxing records of Total fights – 47, Wins – 47, Wins by KO – 26, Losses – 0, Draws- 0, and No contests, Mayweather is an indefatigable champion and of course unbeaten at it.
The pound-for-pound boxing king, who earned £66.1million according to Forbes magazine last year, posted a lavish picture of what you can buy when money is not a thing to you. Mayweather posted a snap online of himself in front of a fleet of luxury cars, as well as his own private jet, and wrote: ‘Welcome to my toyworld! Who wants to come out and play?’
Its no news that Floyd is ostentatious as this is just amongst the numerous times wherewith he flaunts his wealth in the face of all. Well, the pain of boxing is the gain of wealth for the unbeaten boxing champ. See the picture below of a breakdown of the worth of the fleet he is showing off which includes 8 supercars and a whooping £30m Private jet, according to Daily mail.
The collection included two different Bugatti Veyrons, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, two Ferrari 458 Spiders, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Porsche 911 Turbo S and a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. The fastest car on show was the Bugatti Veyron, which has a top speed of 267 mph. The Bugatti cars are also the most expensive, coming in at around £1.5m each, while the cheapest is the Porsche 911 – a bargain at £150,000. The total cost of vehicles on show reaches a staggering £5.55m, and that’s before the price of the plane is included.
Wait sef, even blood money cannot afford a quarter of these. This is pure boxing money!
Meanwhile, somewhere around the corner, Manny Pacquiao, the filipino boxer who has challenged the unbeaten champ is not in support of his ostentatious lifestyle and all he is concerned about is the much talked about FIGHT! The 36-year-old Filipino, who has been attempting to arrange a fight with Mayweather for years, said on Monday: ‘Floyd brags about his lifestyle and everything! I don’t care! I’m just waiting here for him to sign the contract!’ Time will tell actually, its either Pacquiao gets knocked out or Mayweather loses his unbeaten run; thats if he ever signs the contract to fight the filipino.
He also posted a picture on the 1st of November, 2014 showing off the early christmas gift he got himself, A Rolls royce Wraith.
Although, quite a number of people have been talking about his extravagant lifestyle and what have you, but reports have it that he was from a very humble background hence justifying his excessiveness both on social media and real life. I am keeping my fingers crossed this year, and eagerly anticipating the fight between him and Pacquiao.
What do you think? First concerning his flamboyant wealth, and second, his fight? Will he remain unbeaten, or he’d be flawed by his competitor? Time will tell. Feel free to drop your comments in the section below.
