They don’t call him “Money” for nothing; if all goes according to plan, Floyd Mayweather’s career earnings could top $1 billion (yes, billion with a B) following his upcoming “fight” with Conor McGregor. Analysts expect him to reel in something comparable to the $250 million haul he got from fighting Manny Pacquiao. And if you think he hasn’t bought himself some nice things with that money, well think again.
Floyd showed off one of his mansions, and it is certainly a sight to behold.
Mayweather makes several references to his newer, bigger house that he just bought; we wait with bated breath for that tour.
Judging by Floyd’s demeanor, he certainly looks like a man who plans on finishing the year 50-0, not 49-1. Mayweather’s character issues, should you choose to call them that, have been well documented. There were the domestic violence incidents in 2002, 2004, 2005, and the one in 2010 that saw Floyd do 90 days in the slammer. No one gets a pass those things, but it seems like Floyd’s in a better place post-retirement. And one thing you can’t knock is the man’s business savvy. He’s on the cusp of joining Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan as the only athletes who have made more than a billion dollars.
For a guy who “can’t read,” that’s pretty dang impressive.
Say what you will about Floyd Mayweather, but the man hasn’t lost a fight since turning pro in 1996. A lot has happened since then; the September 11th attacks, the election of America’s first black president, and the death of the world’s then-visionary-in-chief, Steve Jobs. Through all that, Floyd has remained undefeated.
Yes, he’s extravagant, braggadocious, and un-relatable, but that’s all part of his brand. What do you expect from a guy who upgraded his nickname from “Pretty Boy” to “Money” — humility and a nice, grounded sense of reality?
Nope. What you see is what you get; Big Boy mansions, fancy cars, and a man who’s never lost a professional fight.
