Floyd “Money” Mayweather is called such for a reason. He’s the highest paid athlete in the world next to Cristiano Ronaldo and LeBron James. He isn’t close to being shy about his wealth either, as the boxing champion shares his expensive collection of sports cars and a private jet on Instagram. What does Manny Pacquiao have to say to this? Read on for more details
Floyd “Money” Mayweather surely knows how to spend his money, and more often than not, the pound-for-pound boxing king is not shy to brag about how much money he has to play with. The boxer is known for posting photos of himself beside his luxury cars, piles of cash and around different women. This time, Mayweather flaunts his expensive toy collection — sports cars and a private jet.
Welcome to my toy world! Who wants to come out & play? Bugatti Veyron $1,600,000 Bugatti Veyron $1,600,000 Bugatti Gran Sport $3,000,000 Ferrari 458 Spider $360,000 Ferrari 458 Spider $360,000 Lamborghini Aventador $390,000 Porsche 911 Turbo S $205,000 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano $350,000 Private Jet #AirMayweather www.themoneyteam.com
According to Forbes, Mayweather earned $105 million in 2014 from his two fights, so it’s not such a wonder how Mayweather has no idea where to spend his money on. After all, if you have it, then flaunt it, right?
His recent Instagram post shows off the boxer posing in front of eight luxury sports cars and a private jet, which the pound-for-pound boxer captioned: “Welcome to my toy world! Who wants to come out and play?”
Mayweather then named each car in the picture, including two Ferrari 458 Spiders, two Bugatti Veyrons, Bugatti Gran Sport, Lamborghini Aventador, Porsche 911 Turbo S and Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.
The boxer, though, lost a $120 million offer from a UAE group after the said group withdrew their support from the boxer after saying that Mayweather’s “Money Team” has “no regard nor respect for the tradition and history of boxing.” M. Akbar Muhammad, a boxing executive, said that the group only wants “to deal with serious individuals… who have the ability to make a decision” and said that such was not the case with Mayweather. Muhammad also told Boxing Scene that “The Money Team” should “consider re-thinking its nickname” after losing the group’s offer for “hot dog money.” The boxing executive also criticized Mayweather for failing to live up to the standards and morals upheld by boxing legends Muhammad Ali and Ray Leonard.
Mayweather’s boxing rival, Manny Pacquiao, on the other hand, posted a photo of him in response to Mayweather’s luxurious toy collection. Pacquiao said in his post that he doesn’t care if Mayweather brags about his lifestyle and said, “I’m just waiting here for him to sign the contract!”
