Floyd Mayweather Flashes $100 Million Cheque on Instagram

The retired pound-for-pound boxing king’s name has been rumored to be in talks to come out of his retirement for a massive fight. Some rumors have him tied to UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor while others link him to a return bout with Manny Pacquiao. Either fight would surely rake in a windfall of money.

However, an Instagram post by Mayweather suggests that the 49-0 fighter is “happily retired” and his proof came in the form of a $100 million dollar check.

“Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man’s legacy instead of trying to write their own,” Mayweather posted in response to the rumors about his return to the ring. “Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh. This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of.”

The check is dated May 2, 2015, which is the date that Mayweather defeated Pacquiao in a record-breaking blockbuster. The fight generated a record 4.6 million pay-per-view buys and brought in over $600 million in revenue. Maywather’s guaranteed purse for that night was $100 million and he ultimately raked in somewhere in the neighborhood of $220 million for the 36 minutes of work that ended in a one-sided decision victory.

Essentially, Mayweather is responding to everyone who has suggested that he’ll fight again for the money. But, as of right now, Mayweather isn’t interested and has more than enough money to hold him over without a return to the ring.

“Y’all still have to work however, I’m happily retired,” Mayweather wrote. “At the end of the day, it’s them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the jokes on you. I’ve made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn’t read, write, or count. Y’all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y’all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y’all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y’all charter jets and we own jets.”

  1. it's good to see this information in your post, i was looking the same but there was not any proper resource, thanx now i have the link which i was looking for my research.

  3. I think that gas stations should charge as high as possible right now. We need to ensure that only those who really need the gas are using it. Further if you want to run a generator like a fiend, then you should pay dearly for the priviledge. If you can be convinced to avoid topping off, so be it. As a proprietor, if you want to destroy your relationship with the public, then go test your resolve. We are playing in the deep end of the pool right now. No fun and games, and most of all, no whining.

  4. Write whatever you want, just know that you may lose followers because they don’t want to subscribe to some political BS. Believe me, Reuters and Bloomberg News have already ruined their usefulness as a go-to source for info. Most of their tweets are garbage re-tweets. If I wanted to see Reuters Political tweets I would follow that handle….You smell what I am steppin’ in?

  5. He looks soooo cool!!! Boy Scouts is the perfect fit for Dude because he is such an outdoorsman and I know he will really strive to participate to his fullest and learn everything he can. The sad side of that…he is getting SOOOOO big and it just seems like he is growing up overnight. Love…Mom

  6. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after looking at many of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  7. Esse procurador disse mais ao menos isto:- Há um ano que eu ando a alertar para estes problemas na televisão, na rádio, nos jornais!Fico estupefacto! Então mas é este o papel dum Procurador Geral da República? Por este andar, qualquer dia ainda acaba em Presidente da República II! Isto é: discursa, mostra-se preocupado com isto e com aquilo, ouve, fala nos media, visita tudo bem acompanhado, acompanha tudo mas não faz nada!Um abraço republicano do rei
