Throughout his stint, Mayweather never shied away from showing his extensive wealth. A couple of years back, ‘TBE’ posted a picture on his Instagram handle that broke the internet.

Later, even a video surfaced over social media wherein he showed a stack of money on the table alongside his jewelry and lush watch. The sole reason for Mayweather putting up a picture with millions of dollars was just to take a jibe at his critics. He even mentioned the same in his caption to that photo.

Mayweather wrote, “This is what I’ve been hearing for 23 years… “All Mayweather does is brag about his cars, his jewelry, his mansions, his ladies, his clothes and his money “. And this is what Mayweather says back… “I’m happy y’all spent over 2 decades hating on me instead of building your own legacy “

“P.S. I’m here to stay”
