FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR has amassed a stunning business empire since hanging up his gloves in 2017.
Boxing legend Money, 45, is estimated to have raked in over $1billion in fight revenue over his illustrious career.
The unbeaten superstar has topped up his bank balance since retirement by appearing in a host of lucrative exhibition bouts.
He’ll next be in action this September as he takes on MMA star Mikuru Asakura in Japan.
But it’s his incredible business portfolio which sets Mayweather out from the crowd – despite claims by some rivals that the ex-fighter is ‘broke’.
Money founded Mayweather Promotions in 2007 after leaving his contract with Bob Arum and Top Rank for a bargain price of $750,000.
This allowed him to negotiate on his own terms and bag huge sums for pay-per-view fights.
Over the past fifteen years, the promotional company has branched out to include musical events, film, TV shows and also looks after a host of boxing talent.
Five years on from retirement, Mayweather has piled his hard-earned dollars into property and claims to own NINE skyscrapers.
He told WBC: “Floyd Mayweather made a lot of smart investments.
“One of the buildings I own is the tallest commercial building in America. So if you get a chance go to New York and check it out.
“This is my ninth sky scraper.”
And Money’s epic portfolio includes his own jewel in the crown – a stunning $22m Los Angeles mansion.
‘I LOVE FAST CARS’
Mayweather calls the epic space his “Beverley Hills castle” and it features an incredible wine cellar featuring hundreds of rare drinks.
Floyd took fans on a tour of his impressive gaff, which includes a 12-car garage for all his fancy motors.
It’s not the only luxury mansion in Mayweather’s possession, with the star also holding residences in Miami, LA and Las Vegas.
Aside from houses, Floyd Jr owns a host of gyms in numerous locations across America.
Sport is where Mayweather’s heart truly lays and along with his promotional work he’s now a fully-fledged NASCAR team owner.
The 50-0 superstar owns The Money Team, who made their debut earlier this season at the Daytona 500.
With promising driver Kaz Grala behind the wheel, Mayweather is confident his new-found passion for speedy whips can rake in wins – and even more cash.
He said: “I love fast cars and I love to compete.
“I know NASCAR will not be easy, but anything easy isn’t worth doing to me.”
‘THIS IS REAL MONEY’
And it might not just be motorsport that Mayweather wants a piece of.
Reports suggest that the boxing legend wants to buy an NBA team.
Floyd revealed on June 14: “I’ve been talking to certain people for the last six months.
“That’s something I’ve been working on behind the scenes, but I’ve never come out to publicly talk about it with the media.
“My team and I have been working behind the scenes with the NBA.
“I can’t say exactly where, but I’m working on getting a team.”
Away from sport, Floyd owns a strip joint close to his digs in Las Vegas.
The gentleman’s club – named Girl Collection – is located close to iconic hotels including the MGM, Luxor and Mandalay Bay.
Opening soon before his 2017 showdown with Conor McGregor, the club is not far from Money’s Dog House gym.
Mayweather celebrated his win over the MMA star in his own club, with pictures showing him showering cash on twerking girls with the caption: “Gotta share the winnings !!!”
While Floyd has also cornered the fashion game with his TMT merchandise.
The ex-boxer’s brand produces hoodies, boxing equipment, caps and jackets all complete with the coveted TMT logo.
And he keeps the dollars rolling in with Skate Rock City in Vegas.
Purchased in 2021, Mayweather renamed the old Boulder Highway rink and lets fans of all ages skate in an environment featuring “state-of-the-art lighting and sound”.
Mayweather returns to the ring in September with an exhibition bout against Japanese MMA fighter Asakura, which will bag him more millions through PPV purchases.
His net worth of $450m doesn’t fully take into account the estimated $1.2bn he’s made from fighting over the last two decades.
Forbes named Money as the highest-paid athlete of the 2010s – and Mayweather has batted away suggestions by 50 Cent that he is ‘skint’.
50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson – claimed in 2020 former pal turned rival Mayweather needed a boxing return because his “money’s gone”.
Money responded in typical fashion, posting a picture of a humongous shoe closet that requires a ladder to reach the top.
He captioned the image: “This is just my shoe closet part 1.”
And Jake Paul – brother of YouTuber Logan who fought Mayweather in a 2021 exhibition – also claims the Money Man is actually “broke”.
He alleged: “Floyd is broke, man. I’ve been saying it the whole entire time.
“I think he probably spent it on all the girls he pays to be around him.”
But Mayweather was scathing in his response to the Paul brothers, insisting that they had to be patient in waiting for pay-per-view money.
Floyd said: “This comes with the territory to them, that’s real money, and I like the YouTubers.
“The money on the back end though, from pay-per-view, that takes a while.
“Nothing comes right away. I’m still collecting cheques from fights seven or eight years ago.
“They just hate when the table is turned. Be happy with the biggest payday you ever got in your life.”
