Floyd Mayweather may be the greatest pound-for-pound boxer that ever lived. Floyd built an unblemished 50-0 record during his career as an active professional fighter. He also earned the nickname “Money” because his fights drew ludicrous amounts of ticket sales and pay-per-view buys.

Mayweather may be retired from competitive boxing, but he’s not done making money yet. Despite holding 9 major world titles during his career, Floyd plans to continue holding exhibition matches and keeping busy with his side hustles. Money has some pretty hefty ambitions when it comes to growing his fortune.

In a recent Instagram post, Floyd Mayweather can be seen working out in the ring while his young grandson looks on. In the caption, Mayweather outlined his plans to continue growing his empire. There were some pretty big names on the list, and Floyd wants his wealth to be included among them.

“Grandson, I’m very thankful for your great Granddad teaching me the sweet science of boxing, to hit and not get hit. I believe in working smarter, not harder. I retired from the sport undefeated with all my accolades and on my own terms. Even in retirement, I’m still able to milk the game of boxing, continuing to make 8 figures or more. I will continue to do exhibition bouts making tons of money and people from all around the world will continue to pay because my hustle is just different. If Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, and the Waltons continue making money in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, then I’m not retiring from making money and I’m younger than all of them.



Since defeating Conor McGregor back in 2017, Floyd has fought in three exhibition matches. His bout with Logan Paul drew a ton of money for both men. Mayweather hopes to continue cashing in, while also finding other ways to place himself on his own personal Mount Rushmore of wealthy personalities.
