Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s nickname is “Money” for a good reason. He’s practically made of cash. And this weekend, the boxer’s bout with long-time rival Manny Pacquiao is set to add another $US200 million to his already hefty bank account.
That is in addition to the more than $US105 million the flamboyant boxing legend made in 2014.
And boy, does he know how to spend it!
Earlier this year, Money Mayweather tweeted out a photo of his jet, a collection exotic cars, and the words “Welcome to my world.”
For those who are curious, here’s a breakdown of everything in Money’s photo — and their approximate values:
A. Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano — $US350,000
B. Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet — $US170,000
C. Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 — $US400,000
D. Ferrari 458 Italia Spider — $US260,000
E. Floyd “Money” Mayweather — net worth est. $US280 million.
F. Ferrari 458 Italia Spider — $US260,000
G. Gulfstream GIII — est. $US2 million.
H. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport — $US1.9 million
I. Bugatti 16.4 Veyron — $US1.3 million
J. Bugatti 16.4 Veyron — $US1.3 million
The total value of the exotic cars in Mayweather’s photo is roughly $US5.94 million. But that’s not all. The boxer has reportedly owned more than 100 luxury cars over the years and is known to keep a collection of white painted cars in Miami in addition to a fleet of black painted cars in Las Vegas.
However, based on some of the prices the boxer quoted in a recent interview with ESPN, it is likely he grossly overpaid for many of the cars in his collection.
Then again, for a guy with an estimated net worth of more than $US280 million, this is but a drop in the bucket. After all, we’re talking about the same Mayweather who reportedly keeps $US123 million in a single bank account.
Money Mayweather doesn’t claim to be an automotive collector in the same realm as a Jay Leno or a Jerry Seinfeld. Rather, he seems to be a guy who enjoys having nice things around — multiple copies of the same nice things. At the end of the day, driving the same Bugatti everyday of the week would be … uncivilized.
