Knockout Punch: Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Reveals $123 Million In A Single Checking Account
Pound for pound, Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers alive. Whether you like him or not, the man is in fact undefeated and doesn't seem to be slowing down his victory rate anytime soon.
Other than being known as a world class fighter, Mayweather also has a reputation for flaunting his wealth and success through an abundance of gaudy Instagram photos and in-your-face tweets. How do you think he got the nickname Money Mayweather?!
At any given time, the 36-year-old, undefeated boxer is ready to showcase bundles of cold hard cash, rare gems, diamond encrusted watches, designer gear and a bunch of other, super expensive items. He's also really picky when it comes to the kinds of cars he owns. As a matter of fact, Mayweather owns two sets of cars that are different colors so he can tell what city he's in. His white fleet means he's in Vegas. That lineup includes a Ferrari, three Rolls-Royces and two Mercedes-Benz S-classes.
Not only is Floyd Mayweather privileged, but his team is, too! The Money Team that is. Aside from showing off, Mayweather takes care of his team by flying his bodyguards and his own personal barber around on their own private jets, giving them the chance to enjoy the same things he does on their own. He's also fearful of flying with too much human bulk. Now that's what you call being conscientious!
Ready for a few random facts? For Floyd's most recent birthday, he was given a cake that had all of the things he likes depicted. He also claims that he never wears the same boxers or sneakers twice.
Tim Keown, an ESPN reporter, was given the great opportunity to tour with Mayweather before his next fight against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez on September 14. While on the tour, Mayweather and his Money Team visited Grand Rapids, Michigan -- Floyd's hometown. At one point during the trip, Keown reports that Mayweather wanted to play basketball with his crew, but no one had any athletic gear handy. Not a problem, though: the crew took a trip to a local Foot Locker where Mayweather bought everyone the necessary gear. While purchasing the items, Mayweather revealed a receipt that showed a balance of $123 million.

Another spending spree took place on the tour when he visited New York City. The champion managed to spend close to a quarter of a million dollars on earrings and necklaces for his daughter.
It's no secret that Money Mayweather has cash to blow, but many people around him think he should consider investing in ways to generate more revenue in more productive ways rather than spending excessively on diamond chains and flashy Louis Vuitton luggage. All in all, the man's a great fighter and if he wants to show off $123 million in his checking account, so be it. Someone's gotta do it! Check out a few Instagram photos from the boxer's personal account for a look inside his lavish lifestyle.
