Floyd Mayweather’s net worth must be some sort of crazy since the boxer admits he is spending $4,000 a day on food. Mayweather even signed a contract using a 18-karat gold pen that’s also worth a cool $4,000. So how is it that he’s able to earn the nickname Money Mayweather?
In a related report by the Inquisitr, WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar claims both Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao could not beat him even if all three men were to tussle at the same time.
While that particular fight is unlikely to ever happen, Las Vegas bets and odds have already been released for the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Vs. Manny Pacquiao fight. The contract was signed with a gold pen called the Peerless 125 by Cross. This particular pen only has 124 brothers out in the world. Cross says Mayweather is in good company with the likes of President Barack Obama and Oprah. According to Cross, using the Peerless 125 for the contract signing now makes the gold pen a “part of history,” and you have to bet it will eventually sell for auction to a sports fan for a pretty big penny.
But the reason we know Floyd Mayweather’s net worth is crazy is because how much he spends on food alone. The boxer is paying a Las Vegas-based chef named Chef Q $184,000 to cook for him up until May 2, when Floyd meets Manny Pacquiao in the ring. This works out to be $4,000 a day. Chef Q says she does not normally charge that huge amount, but Floyd believes her “dishes were worth that much.”
Well, either that, or the boxer has money to burn. Floyd Mayweather’s net worth in 2015 is estimated at $300 million, making him one of the highest paid athletes in the world. Even though Mayweather doesn’t have many endorsement deals, he tends to make around $80 million per year when he’s fighting in the ring.
So far, the biggest take home in cash was tied in 2013. Mayweather brought in $50 million each for the fights with Robert Guerrero and Saul Alvarez. The fight with Pacquiao could easily match that huge lump sum since Mayweather was guaranteed $25 million up front just for showing up to the fight. He will also receive extra cash for the pay per view numbers, which could bring in another $25 million.
As of this publishing, Floyd Mayweather’s career earnings places him at $405 million, making him half a billionaire. At age 38, it’s possible the boxer has a good number of years left in him so he’ll probably have to find some other money pits in order to burn that cash.
