While there is no denying his greatness inside the ring, Floyd “Money” Mayweather’s flamboyant style outside the ring has made him the most polarizing athlete in sports history.
Mayweather travels with Ziploc bags full of $100 bills to cover his outrageous spending habits. Here are a few examples of how the Champ likes to spend his cash…
- Bought a $25,000 mouthpiece made of diamonds, gold flakes and $100 bills
- Watch collection valued at $6.4 million
- Car collection valued at $21.3 million
- Spends at least $6,500 each year on new underwear (because he only wears each pair once!)
You might be asking yourself, “How the hell does Mayweather afford all of this crap?!” According to ESPN Senior Writer, Dan Rafael, Mayweather will earn at least $220 million from his recent fight against Manny Pacquiao. Let’s do the math together — the fight went 12 rounds, with each round lasting 3 minutes — meaning Mayweather will get paid $220 million for 36 minutes of fighting, OR, $6.11 million per minute!
But as quickly as Mayweather earns his cash, he spends it — blowing stacks of cash on unbelievable gifts and ridiculous parties for himself and his entourage. The Champ is not known to be shy, Mayweather is very public about how he spends his hard earned cash. Based on all that we know, certain (outrageous) things are essential to the Mayweather lifestyle.
