Floyd Mayweather(s) Outrageous Cash Spending Sprees
Floyd Mayweather is considered one of the hardest-working, most tactically brilliant and all-around great boxers of all time. However, quite possibly at the top of it all, at least according to his easy going, charismatic nature, he’s the highest-paid athlete in the world! And… He acts like it.
From a fight against contender Marcos Maidana (May 2014), Mayweather will bring in $32 million alone for the bout.
He’s one of the only athletes in the world who can afford to travel with stacks of hundred-dollar bills in Ziploc bags, gamble like crazy, and buy more cars than anyone could possibly need.
As one could imagine, such a lifestyle doesn’t come with a level of criticism attached to it. Listed on his 24×7 blog on ESPN, he addresses PETA and their attempts to sway his love of wearing animal fur in the outlandish mink coats he enjoys:
“In this training camp, we’re boxing nonstop, and when we get in the ring, it’s called the doghouse,” Mayweather said. “So if you look at the ring, it’s always surrounded by a bunch of people, ’cause that’s the doghouse. When you go to a dog fight and you watch pit bulls fight …”
And here he pauses, seeming to understand he has entered into iffy, Michael Vick-ian territory.
He continues: “I don’t want to get in trouble by — what’s the people called, PETA? I don’t want to get in trouble with the PETA people, but … the animal rights people, but s—, I don’t give a f—, ’cause I wear mink coats. I’m gonna wear chinchilla and I’m gonna rock mink coats. The same people want to tell you, ‘You can’t wear animal fur and s—, them’s the same people that’s eating chickens, eating cows, eating steak. So f— what they’re talking about.”
I must say, I’m with him… If he chooses to spend his wealth this way, then NO ONE has the right to judge or try to have him change his lifestyle. Last I checked, this is AMERICA!
