Floyd Mayweather definitely lived up to his “Money” nickname after receiving $100 million dollars for fighting UCC champion Conor McGregor. Read on to watch how Floyd Mayweather flaunts his McGregor check…
We previously told you that Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million and McGregor has a base pay of $30 million. Now that it’s over both fighters are millions richer.
In July, Money made a prediction (photo above):
“Champion Predictions: I’m gonna make a $hit t$n of money on August 26th.”
Floyd is 9 figures richer though and he couldn’t hold back from flaunting it.
Both fighters get a piece of the pay-per-view pie. Early estimates point that the Mayweather Vs. McGregor sold over 5 million subscriptions, making it the most watched PPV of all-time. Surpassing 4.6 million sold for the Mayweather Vs. Manny Pacquiao superfight back on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand.
That was said to have $410 million in revenue and Mayweather walked away with $250 million. Plus, Mayweather and McGregor may break the ticket record that Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao set of $72 million.
DAMN. They don’t call him Money Mayweather for nothing. Before the fight Mayweather’s net worth was $400 million – now with his new payday – Floyd is somewhere around $560 million after taxes.
