However, his fleet of luxury cars, private jets, super-yachts, jewelry, and all of his success did not simply pop up out of thin air. Floyd laced up his gloves for the first time in 1987 as an amateur and he would continue in that domain until 1996; sources suggest he racked up 84 wins and 6 losses. However, his decision to enter the pro-boxing domain turned out to be his real claim to fame.

Starting with a win over fellow debutant, Roberto Apodaca, in 1996, to facing the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, and then finally retiring with a technical demolition of MMA superstar Conor McGregor in 2017, Floyd made quite a lot of money.

Even though he hung up his gloves back in 2017, he is still not quite done with leaping in for quick cash grabs against the likes of Tenshin Nasukawa of Japan and Logan Paul of the internet.

Floyd Mayweather is popularly known as ‘Money’ and rightly so, for his net worth stands at a shocking $450 million in 2021 according to wealthygorrilla.com. However, Mayweather himself has revealed he is worth a reported $1.2 billion.
