Mayweather shows off his cash

By Chris Williams: Floyd Mayweather Jr. took Twitter to show off some of his daily spending cash as he goes on a trip. From the photo Mayweather Tweeted, he believes in staying well stocked with money when going on trips. Mayweather was recently selected by Forbes as the highest paid athlete in sports with the huge bundle of cash that he made for his last fight against Manny Pacquiao last May.

There are estimates that Mayweather pulled in from $200 million to $300 million for that fight alone. Mayweather’s next fight against Andre Berto on September 12th could bring him in more than $50 million, which is a huge bundle of sweet cash considering that he’s not even facing a huge star. Mayweather has a guaranteed $35 million for the Berto fight, and with the pay-per-view money, he could make well over $50 million.


Mayweather’s lifestyle is unbelievable with the money he’s made. He lives in a huge mansion in one of the best neighborhoods in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the money that Mayweather has, he could live in the wealthiest areas of the U.S., places like Beverly Hills, and Atherton, California. Mayweather chooses to live in Las Vegas, a city that is alive 24 hours a day. The city is perfect for Mayweather, because he likes to stay up late into the evening. Everything is there for Mayweather to live in the best way possible.

If Mayweather comes back next year to fight Manny Pacquiao again, he could scoop up another $200 million if he can get Pacquiao at the right price. If Pacquiao is willing to agree to a nice 75-25 or 80-20 cut of the revenue, I believe that a second fight between Mayweather and him can take place. If not, then Mayweather can retire from the sport and live the rest of his life in luxury. The only question is will Pacquiao and his promoter Bob Arum agree to come in at the right price for a rematch?

If they start talking about wanting a 50-50 split of the purse for the rematch, then I think a rematch will be impossible. Mayweather likely won’t have any interest in rewarding Pacquiao for losing and saying he suffered a shoulder injury. Mayweather doesn’t believe in Pacquiao’s injury excuse, and he’s probably not going to want to fight him again unless it’s worthwhile for him to do so. Since there will likely be fewer boxing fans willing to purchase the fight a second time, it’s going to take a larger cut of the financial pie for Mayweather to make the same kind of money that he did last time against Pacquiao. That’s why Pacquiao will have to agree to a smaller cut of the cash in the rematch for the fight to be a profitble one for Mayweather like it was last time.
