Floyd Mayweather has cultivated his reputation as one of the greatest boxers in the history of the sport. The boxer in his legendary career went unbeaten which established him as a global icon. His success in the ring also meant great success off it, as he became one of the highest paid athletes of all-time, making an outrageous amount of money in his career. Even after his retirement, Mayweather has continued to earn bucketloads of cash through his endorsement deals and exhibition appearances.
Mayweather is now set to appear in one of his exhibition appearances in a match against professional kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s eve in Tokyo, Japan, an event for which he will be heavily compensated for.
With the fight less than a month away, Mayweather continued to live up to his ‘Money’ moniker by splashing close to £4m on jewellery in Los Angeles. The items were purchased from renowned celebrity jeweller Peter Marco from his store in Beverly Hills, California. Mayweather splashed the cash on three watches, a necklace and a bracelet.
Mayweather flaunted his new shiny toys on his Instagram profile:
The collection included buying a 30-carat pear-shaped VVS ring for £1.8m and a 3-4.5 ct. diamond bracelet for a mere £1.9m, according to a report in The Sun.
He also spent a further £390,000 on a two-pound yellow gold Cuban necklace and three watches.
