Floyd Mayweather is enjoying his retirement. He's spending time with his family, his girlfriends and his MONEY. Actually he's not spending TIME with his money, he's just spending it. Luckily the greatest boxer ever has TONS of money to spend.
The boxing legend, who generated over $1 BILLION during his career, showed off his latest toys.
He bought a rare $18M watch designed by Jacob & Co, and a bunch of custom iPhone cases - that cost $40K each. The iPhone cases are made from an unscratchable titanium and are studded in VVS diamonds.
According to Page Six, "The jaw-dropping watch, designed by Jacob and Co., cost the former boxing champ $18 million—no, not billion—and is made of 18-carat white gold, 260 carats of emerald-cut diamonds and individual stones up to three carats."
“This my new timepiece, it’s called ‘The Billionaire Watch,” Mayweather informed his Instagram followers. “If you don’t know about it, google Billionaire Watch. That’s $18 million on the price tag.”
And he's not just buying stuff for himself, "Mayweather has been spending a pretty penny on gifts lately, giving his teen daughter an enormous 30-carat diamond ring for her 18th birthday."
However, lucky for Mayweather, he’s also been on the receiving end of such gifts. As Page Six previously exclusively reported, Mayweather’s assistant gave him a custom paddleboard from Brittney Palmer for his 41st birthday.
The artist charged between $15,000 and $20,000 for the gift.
Mayweather is one of the most lucrative pay-per-view attractions of all time, in any sport. He topped the Forbes and Sports Illustrated lists of the 50 highest-paid athletes of 2012 and 2013, and the Forbes list again in both 2014 and 2015, listing him as the highest paid athlete in the world.
In 2007, he founded his own boxing promotional firm, Mayweather Promotions, after defecting from Bob Arum's Top Rank. Mayweather has generated approximately 23.8 million PPV buys and $1.67 billion in revenue throughout his career, surpassing the likes of former top PPV attractions including Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao.
