Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. defeated Marcos Maidana this past Saturday, earning Mayweather more money in one minute than millions of Americans earn in one year. It’s so crazy to even imagine that we had to include the money breakdown image below. The breakdown of earnings below for Money Mayweather comes from his single boxing match against Maidana on Saturday, May 3rd, which Mayweather earned:
$14,815 per second
$888,889 per minute
$2,666,667 per round
$32,000,000 in a total of 36 minutes
The $32,000,000.00 for 36 minutes is before the Pay Per View numbers roll in, which can bring his total nights earnings to another $38,000,000.00 from the back-end business, totaling his profit to $70,000,000.00 in one night!
That’s one great day (or half hour) of a work day! But Mayweather is used to this type of pay and workday showing off his wealth on the following insane things…
He Unnecessarily Charters Separate Private Jets for His Entourage
There’s rich, and then there’s “charter an extra private jet because you’re scared of gravity” rich.
Floyd Mayweather rests firmly in this latter category, according to an interview he recently gave on The Howard Stern Show.
Mayweather was answering questions about his personal finances when he admitted that he charters an extra private jet for his bodyguards while he’s traveling, because he’s afraid their weight would drag his Gulfstream V down.
He Carries Around Sacks of Money
You don’t get nicknamed “Money” by tucking your earnings in a 401K.
Like a modern-day Scrooge McDuck, Mayweather likes to be able to hold his success in his hands and/or use it as a swimming pool.
At any given time when he’s out and about, Mayweather will have thousands of dollars on his person. He keeps about $60,000 on him for light evenings, and claims he can fit $1 million in a hockey bag when he’s decides to roll deep.
Buy Fleets of Luxury Cars
A boxer with a driveway full of expensive cars—no surprise there.
Well, hold up. These are just Mayweather’s Vegas cars. He keeps eight luxury rides at his Las Vegas mansion, and even more at his homes in Los Angeles and Miami.
His cars are also color-coded by city. His Vegas cars are white, while his fleet in Miami are all black. You know, in case he forgets which city he’s in.
Premium Concierge Services
For most of us, fancy concierge service is when the hotel desk guy upgrades to a spacious handicap suite.
For Floyd Mayweather, fancy concierge service involves a company scouring the nation for un-buyable courtside seats. The boxer used one such service to find him courtside seats to the 2013 NBA Finals.
Mayweather hired White Glove Entertainment—a premium concierge and lifestyle service—to find him three courtside tickets to Game 7 of the Heat-Spurs Finals series. It should also be noted that he gave them less than 24 hours to find the tickets. Yes, he asked on June 20th—the day of the game.
Mayweather ended up paying $25,000 a pop three courtside tickets. He also picked up an extra first-row seat for another $5,000. That’s $80,000 on four tickets to a basketball game. Just a part of his day.
He Keeps All His Scratch in One Bank Account
He has $123 million. In a checking account.
That’s something that Mayweather recently revealed to ESPN’s Tim Keown. Keown was traveling with Mayweather’s entourage doing pre-fight coverage when Mayweather whipped out a bank receipt showing $123 million in his checking account.
“One account, baby,” Mayweather said.
