To say that Floyd Mayweather is flamboyant may be an understatement. The 39-year-old undefeated pro boxer was widely recognized as the highest-paid athlete in the world, up until very recently (Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly made the most money of any athlete in the world this past year). As a result of the amount of cash at Floyd's disposal, the boxer chooses to spend it in extremely lavish ways. Floyd's latest big purchase shows why he's earned the nickname "Money" Mayweather.
Floyd Mayweather has reportedly purchased a brand new private jet for his personal use. According to his representative, the boxer bought a 12 passenger Gulfstream III, which is decked out with "gold cup holders, gold sink, gold accents throughout." In addition, the jet has "all white leather seats and a fully stocked kitchen."
Here comes the absurd part, though. According to his representative, Floyd now has two jets, "Air Mayweather 1 and 2." Though it isn't known how much Floyd dropped on this particular jet, similar models of the Gulfstream III have sold for an upwards of $34 million. Mayweather earned $250 million off of one fight last year, the now infamous bout between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, which means he would still have a decent amount of money left over from the fight, even after dropping a fortune on the jet.
We shouldn't be too surprised at the fact that he dropped an insane amount of money on a jet. After all, we're talking about a guy who bought a million dollar watch – TWICE! He also bought a $3.5 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse late last year. So let's just say that this jet is yet another in a long line of outlandish purchases by the flamboyant boxer.
