The sport of boxing has made its very own crown prince, Floyd Mayweather Jr, one of the wealthiest athletes on the planet. Moreover, an illustrious boxing career and his clever investment strategies have earned him the rightfully-earned moniker, ‘Money’ Mayweather. And this massive wallet has in turn paved the way for some flamboyant and ostentatious purchases. From a private jet to a fleet of cars, to a watch collection that is worthy of a crazy horologist’s lucid dream, Mayweather has it all.

In a recent Instagram post, Mayweather shared a behind-the-scenes picture of photographer, Noir7stars, taking his photo. And the photographer was especially focused on his grills. Notably, grills are decorative covers made of gold, silver, and other precious metals. These covers are often embedded in diamonds and snap over an individual’s teeth.

Meanwhile, he also had a rather interesting statement as the caption. He also referenced heavyweight legend George Foreman’s cooking grill range. However, it is currently not known how much Mayweather’s diamond-encrusted grills are worth.

While there is no doubt that the ornament is colossally pricey, it can be said that it is but spare change for the champ’s $1.2 billion net worth.

Mayweather once spent $25,000 on a mouthguard

This was not the first time that Mayweather spent big money on adorning his pearly whites. In fact, he once spent a whopping $25,000, to ensure that his smile stays perfect as he traverses on his pugilistic journey.

Mayweather was preparing for his May 2015 showdown against Manny Pacquiao. This was when he got dentist Dr Lee Gause to design a custom-made mouthpiece for him. The mouthpiece also had gold and diamonds incorporated into the design. Moreover, it even had real $100 bills woven into it.
