Floyd Mayweather poses with $2 million in cash, disses critics: 'Happy 4th, this is my independence'
The former professional boxer decided to flaunt his mountains of cash in $100 banknotes on a video post on Instagram
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather attacked his critics by posing with nearly $2 million in cash on social media and posted a scathing message alongside the photo. Mayweather's stunning career in the boxing ring with an undefeated record of 50-0 earned him millions of dollars, and also the moniker "Money Man", according to a Daily Mail report.
The former professional boxer decided to flaunt his mountains of cash in $100 banknotes in a post on Instagram. According to reports, it amounted to around $1.7million.
In a separate video post, Mayweather showed off a massive medallion around his neck made of pure gold, the biggest Chanel bag ever, as well as an Arnold Schwarzenegger limited edition watch, sold for up to $66,000 online. Furthermore, he also put on display his $20 bills section, which reportedly totaled to another $200,000.
Alongside the picture post, Mayweather slammed his critics saying, "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."
"I was once told that 'the loudest person in the room is the weakest person in the room'," he wrote in a caption with the video post. "Well, that works for the individuals that are doing something illegal. But in my case, I’m happy to flaunt my legal wealth and brag about being a black man that came from poverty, beat all odds and not give a f*** about what anybody thinks."
He concluded by saying, "Happy 4th, this is my independence! Now, let the fireworks begin!" The 42-year-old has become notorious for showing off his wealth over the years, with his net worth ranging anywhere between $700m to $1 billion.
In March this year, Mayweather flashed his custom-made private jet, diamond studded jewelry, as well as a '50-0' jacket at his Las Vegas strip club 'Girl Collection'. The fighter also made headlines while shopping last year when he dumped a bagful of cash onto a department store floor.
Similar to his recent posts, he posted a video in 2016 posing with at least $1m in cash. The "Money Man" is now set for another huge payday in Japan as he targets yet another lucrative exhibition in the country.
After knocking out kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an unofficial bout on December 31 last year, he banked more than $8.8million. And last month he launched his latest brand 'TMT' (The Money Team) and struck a new deal for Mayweather Promotions in Japan.
