Floyd Mayweather Charging Extortionate Fees For Online Meet-And-Greets, He Still Claims He's Loaded

Floyd Mayweather Charging Extortionate Fees For Online Meet-And-Greets, He Still Claims He's Loaded

Punters will get the chance to meet one of the greatest boxers of all-time – if they can afford it.

Come on Floyd, man.

Despite constantly flashing his cash, there's rumours beginning to swirl that Floyd 'Money' Mayweather isn't as minted as he says.

And this latest revelation certainly won't do him any favours.

The boxing legend is charging fans extortionate fees for the opportunity to have an exclusive one-on-one chat with him online.

On the platform Fanmio, a whopping £1200 will get you a private video call with Mayweather.

Yes, £1200.

“I would love to invite you to Fanmio, where you can personally meet me, in a one-on-one video meet and greet," he said in a promotional clip.

“Now here’s your chance, to meet me, no matter where you at around the world.

“You can ask me anything, ask me about all 50 fights, ask me what’s my eating regiment, ask me what’s my best fight, ask me what’s my best knockout, ask me what I do everyday, in retirement.

“To be the best, you must always work overtime.

“This event is unbelievable, you guys don’t won’t to miss out, I’ve got some exclusive pieces I will be signing just for this event.

“I can’t wait to meet you all, I want to meet your family, your friends."

Mayweather makes no secret of the fact that he's absolutely loaded.

His lavish lifestyle of multi-million-dollar mansions, expensive Maybachs, mega-money bets, and designer drip is plastered all over his social media channels.

The retired, undefeated boxer made a reported £350 million from his bout with Conor McGregor alone, and that's no including his other 49 professional fights as well as his various exhibitions he's done since hanging up the gloves.

But it seems not everyone is buying it.

A number of big-name figures have come out in recent years and claimed that Mayweather's money is drying up thanks to his unhealthy spending habits.

Rapper 50 Cent, whose social media game is savage to say the least, always uses any opportunity to have a pop at his old friend Floyd.

It's hard to be a definitive stamp on just how much the guy has sitting in his bank account, although reports his net worth is estimated to be somewhere between US$450-$560 million.

Not according to the man himself though, who insists we should be swapping that 'M' at the start of 'million' for a 'B' instead.

“I’ve made a billion," Mayweather told the Million Dollaz Worth of Game show.

“I’ve reached that four years ago. [Now I’m] over $1.2billion…

“I knew from the beginning I was the best in boxing, from day one.

“I just knew I was better than every other fighter. There will never be a fighter better than me, never.

“Tell me another fighter that beat 16 world champions straight? Tell me another fighter that, in just two fights, made $650million?

“For Pacquiao I made $300million, for McGregor I made $350million.”

He added: “I would [rather] have the currency than the legacy, my legacy is already engraved in stone.

“They say, ‘Mayweather’s doing exhibitions, it’s bad for boxing.’

“At the end of the day, my mother’s a millionaire, my dad’s a millionaire, my children are millionaires.

“My little [five-month-old] grandson is a multi-millionaire and he don’t even know it.”

Logan Paul, a guy who Mayweather has fought in an exhibition match, recently confirmed that he'd be taking the boxing great to court over unpaid wages from their bout.

Mayweather raked in a reported £100 million from his clash with the YouTuber but Paul is adamant that he hasn't received the full bank cheque just yet.
