They don’t call him Money for nothing.
placeholder title

On Saturday, Floyd Mayweather will face off against Manny Pacquiao in the fight of the century. There’s a lot at stake: Pride, honor, bragging rights, manhood, machismo, the possibility of being very lucrative public humiliation broadcast over both HBO and Showtime. You get the idea. But even if Mayweather’s defeated in the ring, he’ll still be walking away with a reported $180 million. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

That $180 would be added to his already monstrous estimated net worth of $280 million. In 2014 he was named the highest paid athlete in the world. The man has so much money, his nickname is Money! (Related, my new nickname is Snacks.)

One of Mayweather’s most endearing qualities is that he is not a spendthrift. In fact, he spends exorbitant amounts of cash on the most ostentatious goods imaginable and then posts the results on social media. The man earned it, so let him flaunt it. Meanwhile, we’ll derive great pleasure remembering his most ridiculous purchases:

In January, he purchased a $3.2 million Ferrari Enzo, one of only 399 ever made. 

In fact, he’s purchased 100 cars from the same dealership over the course of 18 years, including a sweet 16 Rolls-Royces.

And he has a collection of all-white cars, which he may or may not drive after Labor Day.

Continuing the vehicular trend, he bought his son a Bentley golf cart for his 15th birthday.

He channeled his inner fashionista with a Birkin crocodile murse.

He’s also an aficionado of glitzy watches, with one case containing $6.4 million worth of bling. (He is also quick to remind us that this photo “is just one case.”)

After all, money is music to his ears.
