Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the most successful boxers in the history of the sport. He is also ranked as the best boxer in his generation after going 50 fights without losing any. He has also made a mark for himself for being one of the highest-paid athletes of all time.
Some of his fights generated unbelievable financial returns. For instance, his fight with Manny Pacquiao broke every financial record in the business. The fight raked about $600 million on pay-per-view and an extra $73 million for gate tickets. Reports also have it that the least Floyd Mayweather Jr. has made in a single fight since 2006 was $25 million.
In 2017, in the incredibly anticipated encounter with Conor Mcgregor, he made $100 million.
Beyond boxing, Floyd Mayweather is also known for his flashy and envy-inducing lifestyle, especially on social media.
He is famous on social media for posting photos of his over 100 high-end luxury cars, some of his supercars costing more than a private jet. He is even known to buy different colours of the same type of vehicle.
His flamboyant lifestyle did well in attracting the attention of the tax authorities. In July 2017, there was news that he owed more than $30 million in unpaid taxes to the IRS. Despite the setback, Mayweather still continues to spend millions in exotic cars. It was reported that there is over $15 million worth of cars in his garage that he has never driven, yet they sit in the garage of his Las Vegas mansion.
Yesterday, as it has become typical of him, he posted a picture of his lavish garage and captioned the post:
“My garage looking like an indoor dealership with a few light toys.
