If there is one thing the world knows about Floyd Mayweather, it is that the man loves to flaunt his wealth.
So it was no surprise then that, after yet another big win following his latest gambling venture, the former five-division world champion was on hand to show off his winnings to followers on Instagram. They don’t call him ‘Money’ for nothing.
The 40-year-old was pictured on a private jet, the day after he had been out in West Hollywood at CATCH LA nightclub for a record label launch.
Mayweather had posed alongside Mariah Carey in California, the pair also posing with her former husband Nick Cannon.
On his flight, the former world champion could be seen with a stack of 100 dollar bills sitting precariously in his lap, with the total cash pile estimated to be in the region of $350,000.
And bragging about his financially beneficial guesswork, Mayweather revealed he had the scoring feats of NBA star Isaiah Thomas to thank for his extra baggage at check in.
The Boston Celtics point guard scored 53 points for his side in the play-offs as they beat the Washington Wizards 129-119. The 28-year-old held back tears in his post-match press conference.
It was an emotional night for Thomas, too, taking his side to victory on what would have been his late sister’s 23rd birthday.
Mayweather, however, was more concerned with the performance though, and he posted his picture on Instagram, along with the message: ‘I bet on @isaiahthomas today! #TMT.’
Despite his massive winnings, his face belied the emotions of a man who had just been giving something to cheer, as he solemnly stared out the plane window.
Perhaps Mayweather has other things on his mind, with reports suggesting that his latest big payday – a megafight with UFC star Conor McGregor, may be on the ropes.
Talks over the proposed fight are at a standstill, meaning the American is in danger of missing out on a £100m boost to his finances.
The fight is still not out of reach and he may yet get to show off his bumper purse in ways only he can, but for now Mayweather will have to make do with flaunting his private jet pin money.
