Floyd Mayweather is strategic.  His nickname isn’t “Fast Gloves,” “Fists of Fury,” or “The Desert Destroyer.”  

No, it’s “Money” because he knows how to make it and spend it. He famously travels in public with $1 million in cash in a briefcase and two huge bodyguards at his side and he posted an Instagram message to his young grandson that he plans to continue to print money until he’s a great, great grandfather. The young grandchild was recently watching Mayweather train in the boxing ring, and here’s what Mayweather posted. 

“Grandson, I’m very thankful for your great Granddad teaching me the sweet science of boxing, to hit and not get hit. I believe in working smarter, not harder. I retired from the sport undefeated with all my accolades and on my own terms.” 

“Even in retirement, I’m still able to milk the game of boxing, continuing to make 8 figures or more. I will continue to do exhibition bouts making tons of money and people from all around the world will continue to pay because my hustle is just different.”

That’s an understatement.  Mayweather is 45-years old now, still in phenomenal shape, and he retired undefeated from professional boxing.  His goals now are to follow the same formula as some of the richest people in the world. 

Here’s more from Mayweather’s post. 

“I will continue to do exhibition bouts making tons of money and people from all around the world will continue to pay because my hustle is just different. If Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, and the Waltons continue making money in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, then I’m not retiring from making money, and I’m younger than all of them.”

Mayweather is as great of a salesman as he is a boxer. He’s as talented as a promoter as he is at fighting. He made $300 million for doing an exhibition fight with Conor McGregor and more than that in a fake fight against Logan Paul.

Now granted, Paul has accused Mayweather of not paying him a penny of his cut, but you don’t accumulate a net worth of about $1 billion without being a little shrewd, cut-throat, and creative.
