Celebrity boxing has been on an uptick this year, but nothing seemed to top the summer of 2018. Floyd Mayweather Jr. posted a $100,000 reward after bagging $65 million off the back of the boxing match against MMA star, Conor McGregor. The money is part of a deal for Mayweather to appear in an upcoming film called “The Adventures of Rocky,” and you can bet that it’s not a small reward.If you thought Logan Paul was brave to step into the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr, imagine how much courage it takes to rob the undefeated boxing champion. Mayweather recently joined the ranks of crime victims in America, prompting him to shell out at least $100,000 to catch the criminals.
Floyd Mayweather’s wealth allows him to offer a generous reward
Floyd Mayweather made easy money by fighting Logan Paul in an eight-round practice match. However, a few days later he returns to Las Vegas and discovers that his house has been broken into. | Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images Just because Mayweather’s net worth reached $500 million last summer – and may be approaching $1 billion – doesn’t mean one of the world’s most famous athletes tolerates talk of his business. Mayweather made his money by beating everyone in the ring in exchange for huge royalties and a share of pay-per-view revenue. Since paying $750,000 to get out from under his contract with Bob Arum in 2006, he’s managed to keep all the money he’s made. Now he’s offering a six-figure reward. Mayweather found out this weekend that he was the victim of foul play, and the champion wants to know who robbed him. A person’s home is his sanctuary, a place of peace, rest and comfort. When someone violates that sanctuary, it’s upsetting and hurtful, Mayweather wrote on social media this week. One of my homes was robbed in Las Vegas. They stole a lot of valuable bags and other valuables. I am offering a reward of at least $100,000 for information leading to the return of my property. TMZ reports that Mayweather discovered the crime after he was released from his exhibition fight with Logan Paul on the 6th. June had come back from Miami. He stayed in Florida for a few more days before returning to his base in Las Vegas.
Mayweather is extremely wealthy, but he has joined the ranks of the common man
. His 50-0 record as a professional boxer, with victories over such well-known opponents as Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez, shows that Mayweather can take care of himself physically and financially. However, this does not mean that he is immune to the frustrations of the working class. The level of disrespect and greed it takes for someone to do something like this is beyond comprehension, he wrote of the robbery. Thanks to all who report information. God bless you. The difference between a break-in at Mayweather’s Las Vegas home and a robbery at the home of a worker making $50,000 a year is a matter of scale. The amount of the reward and the value of some items that may have been lost during the crime are evidence of this. Her post on Instagram mentions many valuable bags. TMZ dove into its archives and found a link to a 2017 article about what it called foolish purchases after Mayweather won by technical knockout over Conor McGregor in his most lucrative fight of all time. The website reports that Mayweather left the Beverly Hills store with more than $200,000 worth of Hermes Birkin bags. The crown jewel of the collection was a limited edition white crocodile bag priced at $125,000 on the store’s website.
A multiple champion overcomeshits
. Mayweather is 44 years old and tired of real fights. The former WBC champion in five weight classes, including lightweight and welterweight, has just taken part in one of those celebrity shows that have become fashionable as boxing has lacked attractive fights over the past two years. The Mayweather vs Paul fight on the 6th. The month of June in Miami was a somewhat dull, but nonetheless interesting experience. The show has reportedly brought in over a million buys. Observers drew some conclusions:
- Mayweather remains a sought-after artist.
- The games featuring celebrities like Paul and his brother Jake Paul are sold out.
- Even a Sunday night PPV event can be profitable if it doesn’t have significant entertainment competition.
Between the sponsorships, guaranteed money and the portion of PPV revenue he received, Mayweather claims to have walked away from the Miami show with $65 million. It doesn’t diminish the excitement of the robbery and the victim’s sense of rape, but it certainly helps. Like Sportscasting on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter @sportscasting19 .
