Floyd Mayweather has $80 million in exhibition offers on the table
Floyd Mayweather's lifestyle requires a certain level of income.
Having grown accustomed to the finer things in life over the past two decades, Mayweather is keen to keep the money rolling in now that he is technically retired for good.
The undefeated boxing great continues to entertain offers for lucrative exhibition bouts and travelled to Japan for a New Year's Eve meeting with Tenshin Nasukawa, a contest which saw Mayweather demolish the young kickboxer inside one round.
Mayweather maintains that he is retired and it's hard to blame him for not committing to lengthy training camps and the risk of losing his unbeaten record considering the money that is being touted for straightforward exhibitions.
'Money' has admitted that he has several offers on the table, totalling a figure which most boxers could only dream of earning in a professional career.
"You know what’s crazy? The exhibition [against Tenshin Nasukawa] was supposed to be $9 million, but I ended up making $10 million. I got a bonus," Mayweather recently told reporters.
"Am I having more exhibitions? Probably so. Most likely, yeah. I got about $80 million on the table worth of exhibitions."
Mayweather was speaking after his protege, Gervonta Davis, moved to 21-0 with a devastating first-round knockout victory over Hugo Ruiz.
And the 41-year-old claims that Davis, despite being in the prime of his boxing career, is set to follow his lead and take on Nasukawa in an exhibition fight.
"We got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan in April," Mayweather added. "Yes, he’s fighting Tenshin in an exhibition bout in Japan."
