Despite his earning, reports suggested Mayweather was not worth a billion dollars. Many calculations show that the former multi-weight world champion is well over the 500 million mark. However, ‘Money Mayweather’ has now revealed his actual net worth.

The 50-0 boxer spoke to Million Dollaz Worth of Game on YouTube and said, “My mother’s a millionaire, my dad’s a millionaire, my children are millionaires. My little grandson is a multi-millionaire and he don’t even know it.”

Thus, this comment showed Mayweather has looked out for all his family members. The undefeated champion then put all rumors to bed when he revealed, “I’ve made a billion. I’ve reached that four years ago. [Now I’m] over $1.2billion.”

The revelation from Mayweather will spark debate as it could be a case of him referring to his earnings rather than his net worth. However, given the subjective nature of a person’s net worth, it is highly unlikely that we will get an accurate figure.
