‘They’re upset, see, they’re upset because .. I’m smart, I cap all my faculties, I made a lot of smart investments.

‘When great people like Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, the Waltons the people that own Walmart and Walgreens, when they’re getting money in their 50s, 60s, 70s, even in their 80s and 90s – it’s ok.

‘A young kid like myself from the inner city, from the ghetto, I worked my way to the top. I was able to leave boxing on my own terms and keep all my faculties and a lot of my money.

‘They’re upset that I’m able to go out there and continue to make 40, 50, 60 million [dollars] outside the ring.

‘You can’t get mad, it’s what God wanted.   

Mayweather first took to the ring for an exhibition match on New Year’s Eve in 2018 to take on Japanese kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa. His opponent was knocked down three times. 

The undefeated boxer went on to face Logan Paul and YouTuber Deji Olatunji, with his Logan Paul clash generating an eye-watering $50million.  

Mayweather’s famous fight with Conor McGregor made a revenue of $370m – dubbed as The Money Fight, with Mayweather winning with a tenth round knock-out.
