Fans and other pros have slammed the 44-year-old for 'damaging his legacy' by taking the fight but he's hit back.
Mayweather, who adopted the 'Money' moniker over 15 years ago, spoke immediately after the fight and said: "They say 'It's not all about the money' but the thing is... your kids can't eat legacy.
"Patches on my trunks are worth $30 million alone, so who is the smartest man in boxing really?
"If you guys don't want to see me fight exhibitions then don't come, don't watch! When it comes to... legalised bank robbing... I'm the best.
"I don't care if y'all write good stories, if y'all write bad stories, at the end of the day, I will always have the last laugh."
He continued: "Damn, I'm writing this story about Floyd. Look at the house I go to and look at the house he go to.
"When I see there's a chance for me to do a heist, a quick heist, at the end of the day, I'm the smart one.
"They say 'Oh Floyd don't look good like he used to look'... my bank account looking better and better each and every day."
It is believed the fight against Paul could earn Mayweather up to $100 million when all is said and done.
The 50-0 fighter also conceded he could be done in the ring for good this time.

Per Bloody Elbow Mayweather said: "We don't know what the future holds, but I'll talk it over with my team and see where we go from there.
"You've got to realize, I've been in this sport 25 years. And I understand that I'm not 21, I'm not 25. But I had fun tonight."
