Floyd Mayweather Jr. has just proved that he does not need to fight anymore to earn money after taking it to his personal Instagram account, bragging about his retirement plan. The American boxer has uploaded a photo of a check named to him with an unbelievable amount of $100 million.
Though the check was issued in May 2015 from that time’s boxing event, which was the trivial match with Philippines champion, Manny Pacquiao. That time, Mayweather Jr. was also sued for defamation by Josie Harris accusing him of lying in an interview back in April 2015. Getting his titles stripped and going through a lot, he announced his second retirement after beating Andre Berto in September 2015.
The post most likely has a back story and it probably leads to the events that happened to him causing him to retire. He captioned the said photo with a lengthy piece boasting about as it was one of the several checks he has, the luxurious things he possessed, and that after everything that has happened, he has the last laugh. He also preached about how people should not be worked up about a person’s legacy and instead focus on making their own footprints.
Mayweather Jr. holds an undefeated record of 49 wins at the time he declared his untimely retirement. But there have been rumors going around that the boxer might just resume his boxing career soon. Rumor has it that Mayweather Jr. is setting a goal to have 50 wins after it has been reported that Mayweather Promotions is filing for trademarks of “TBE 50” and “TMT 50”.
Another rumor says there might be a possible crossover fight between him and UFC Lightweight Champion, Conor McGregor but the gossip was debunked by UFC President, Dana White saying there were no definite plans. This stunt of uploading a check from one of his boxing events could just be another tease or promotional gig trying to hype fans for his comeback. But whatever the real reason behind it, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has shown the world that he can live for a hundred years without having to step back in the arena.
