Floyd Mayweather is never shy to flaunt the wealth he has earned from boxing
The former three-weight champion showed off his private jet and jewellery – The 42-year-old is expected to sign a mega fight deal with Manny Pacquiao.
Floyd Mayweather was again exhibiting his hard-earned wealth from the sport that brought him fame and fortune, boxing. The retired undefeated champions was filmed coming out of his private jet with his name boldly written on it as well as the TMT logo of The Money Team, his lifestyle brand.
The American was wearing a special TMT jacket commemorating his untarnished 50 wins and zero defeat record achieved in his illustrious career. At the top of the jacket it says ’50-0 the best ever,’ and across the rest of the back are pictures of Mayweather himself, along with his dad, Floyd Mayweather Sr, and at the bottom, a championship belt. Mayweather turned around to face the camera and it slowly panned up to reveal giant, gemstone-encrusted bracelets and a dazzling watch.
The camera also revealed multiple sparkling chains around his neck, and even his sunglasses seemed to be glinting with stones. According to Forbes, Mayweather was the highest-paid celebrity in 2018. His 2017 fight against Conor McGregor generated over $550 million(R7 915 682 500) in revenue, and earned $275 million (R3 957 841 250). In December of 2018, Mayweather is believed to have earned $88 million (R1 266 509 200) for his appearance against Japanese kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa.
He also claimed last month he will make another $80 million (R1 151 004 000) in exhibition fights this year. Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez are currently looking to lure the 42-year-old into respective rematches, which would likely bring in even more than that.
