Floyd "Money" Mayweather has a lot of money. We would know that he has a lot of money even if he didn't flaunt his wealth like a 19th-century Russian oligarch: he reportedly received $50 million for fighting Robert Guerrero in May, he made $40 million for his 2012 match against Miguel Cotto, and his deal with Showtime has been called the "richest individual athlete deal in all of sports." He's loaded.
But back to how he flaunts it: Mayweather has never been shy about publicly announcing his multi-million dollar bets, or his private jets or his—fuck, I can't think of any more "-et" words to rhyme here—and even though the boxer has maybe pocketed more over the past five years than any other athlete alive, you get the sense he doesn't take great care of his winnings.
Floyd is watching me watch [his bank slip] as my eyes attempt to focus on the balance. I look at the numbers spread out across the thermal paper.... I look up to see Floyd smiling. He begins to laugh.... I look down one more time to make sure I got it right. And yes, it's right there, 11 numbers long.
There is more than $123 million in Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s bank account.
He nods, folds the slip and says, "One account, baby."
Yes. Floyd Mayweather is currently sitting on a bank account worth millions more than what the FDIC insures. It's all in one account. It's just sitting there. Floyd Mayweather's financial planner is a blow-up doll with a monocle.
