Floyd Mayweather reveals eye-watering tax bill despite fighting twice in 2023

Floyd Mayweather has revealed a monstrous tax bill on social media despite retiring from professional boxing.

Mayweather walked away from boxing after recording his 50th career win against UFC superstar Conor McGregor back in August 2017.

But he has since returned to the sport, where he has competed in exhibition bouts.

Mayweather has fought the likes of Tenshin Nasukawa, Logan Paul and Deji since calling time on his legendary career.

And in 2023, he took on Aaron Chalmers and John Gotti III.

A rematch against former foe Manny Pacquiao in an exhibition bout has also been mooted following a surprise announcement last year.

He's still earning big pay cheques even though he is no longer a professional fighter.

However, a huge chunk of his career earnings was deducted after the former pound-for-pound king revealed that he had to pay a whopping $18 million in tax.

On social media, he posted an image of his tax bill, accompanied with the caption: "Just before I paid that light million and change for that little Super Bowl stuff, I had to pay the IRS aka Uncle Sam $18,047,181.

"This is what I owed in taxes while I’m retired so just imagine what I was paying when I was activated."

Mayweather, though, flaunted his wealth despite being hit with a tax bill as he spent over $1 million to purchase a suite in Las Vegas to watch this weekend's Super Bowl.

"I don’t kiss a** and I never have to beg for nothing especially not to get a Super Bowl suite," he wrote on social media.

"I don’t mind accepting invites at times, but one things for sure...The person that’s paying does all the saying.

"Therefore I get My Own seats and suites so I can do what I want and invite who I want! I’m blessed to be taking 34 people to experience the 1st Super Bowl in Las Vegas!"
