The former five-division champion is not tiring of retirement yet
Floyd Mayweather has sent a defiant message to his critics by posing with $ 1.8million in cash on American Independence Day.
The retired, 50-0 boxing legend prided himself on his ability to generate hundreds of millions in the ring and, now that his career is done, continues to enjoy the fruits of his labour.
On July 4, the American posted a video in which he showed off a special Arnold Schwarzenegger watch, the one of a kind, biggest Chanel bag in the world and numerous dollar bills equating to £1.44million in cash laid out on a table.
Mayweather captioned the clip: “I was once told that the loudest person in the room is the weakest person in the room.
“Well, that works for the individuals that’s doing something illegal.
“But in my case, I’m happy to flaunt my legal wealth and brag about being a black man that came from poverty, beat all odds and not give a f*** about what anybody thinks.
“Happy 4th, this is my independence! Now, let the fireworks begin!”
In addition, Mayweather also uploaded a simple image of himself with his money and directed a message specifically to his ‘haters.’
“This is what I’ve been hearing for 23 years, ‘All Mayweather does is brag about his cars, his jewellery, his mansions, his ladies, his clothes and his money’.
“This is what Mayweather says back, ‘I’m happy y’all spent over two decades hating on me instead of building your own legacy.’”
Mayweather was recently challenged by Conor McGregor to participate in the bottle cap challenge, but has not replied.
