Floyd Mayweather counts out $1 million while aboard private jet in viral video

Floyd Mayweather was the highest-earning American athlete of the past year, collecting $85 million for a pair of victories over Victor Ortiz and Miguel Cotto.

And it looks like a two-month stint in a Las Vegas jail hasn’t made the fighter nicknamed “Money” any less brazen about flaunting it.

Mayweather is shown counting out $1 million while aboard a private jet in a video posted on YouTube earlier Tuesday.


The No. 1 fighter in SI.com’s pound-for-pound ratings, Mayweather was released from the Clark County Detention Center on Aug. 3 after serving two months of a three-month sentence in a misdemeanor battery case.

The 35-year-old has yet to hint at his future plans, though Mayweather will need a new license to fight in Las Vegas, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission. His previous license for the May 5 victory over Cotto was granted for one fight only.

    It doesn't make blacks with money look stupid, it makes him look stupid. He does not represent a whole race of people.

    Floyd, I hope you see this, but that's just juvenile.  There are lots of rich people in this world and they don't make a public display of counting their money.  Have a little respect especially for the working stiff who pays hard earned money to watch you on those over-hyped and over-priced HBO telecasts, and show some class.  Your act is getting old, much like you are.

    This guys is flaming idiot. By 30, stupid actions like this should stop. I hope he goes broke. I say that with absolutely no jealousy whatsover. I don't see warren buffet, , magic johnson, Bill gates, or even Jay-Z counting cash on a plane. Complete ghetto trash with no class. Ugh!! Makes blacks with money look stupid.

    1. [...] Small Bite: Isn’t integrity what counts, not counting money, @FloydMayweather? Full Platter: In what may be the most nouveau riche, basic, unfathomable move for a visible man, in the history of like, all history, Floyd Mayweather who was just released from jail on Aug. 3, was seen on video counting $1 million–in cash. Whom the boxer is counting for is entirely unbeknownst to the average onlooker, but clearly money is on his mind, and he's got something to prove. Though Floyd Mayweather is reportedly the highest paid athlete in the country as of now, his money-counting move would certainly be foreign to the likes of Warren Buffet and say, Boone Pickens who embarrassed rapper Drake a few months ago after his equally nouveau riche behavior. In any case, to each his own. If you would like to watch Floyd in action, counting money, in a private jet, on viral video, please feel free to do so below, and leave your thoughts and comments.
