Floyd Mayweather has claimed that his net worth has now surpassed $1.2billion ahead of his exhibition fight with social media influencer Logan Paul on Sunday night.
Boxing’s former pound-for-pound king, who retired with a 50-0 record, expects to add another $100million to that tally when he meets the YouTuber, and has also revealed his final purses for the blockbuster Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor fights.
Mayweather told the Million Dollaz Worth of Game show in May: “I would [rather] have the currency than the legacy, my legacy is already engraved in stone.
“They say, ‘Mayweather’s doing exhibitions, it’s bad for boxing.’
“At the end of the day, my mother’s a millionaire, my dad’s a millionaire, my children are millionaires.
“My little [five-month-old] grandson is a multi-millionaire and he don’t even know it.”
Floyd explained that, due to various investment returns, he still still making millions every week, even in retirement.
When asked if he is currently a billionaire, Mayweather replied: “I’ve made a billion.
“I’ve reached that four years ago. [Now I’m] over $1.2billion…
“I knew from the beginning I was the best in boxing, from day one.
“I just knew I was better than every other fighter. There will never be a fighter better than me, never.
“Tell me another fighter that beat 16 world champions straight? Tell me another fighter that, in just two fights, made $650million?…
“For Pacquiao I made $300million, for McGregor I made $350million.”
Mayweather was then asked if he’d consider returning to boxing for one last serious fight if offered a record-smashing $500million payday.
He concluded: “My health is my wealth… No amount of money is worth my health, no amount of money.
“But I’m still a smart business man. Now [if] we talk about a Logan Paul, a YouTuber, for $100million? Give me that.”
