Floyd Mayweather’s rumoured bankruptcy
Although it is common for celebrities to use their popularity to provide such services to their fans, Mayweather was charging a massive amount or money for it. This raised questions regarding Mayweather’s financial condition as if the fighter is going short of money.
After retiring from professional boxing in 2017 with a perfect record of 50-0, Floyd Mayweather is hustling and earning for money till date. Currently, the legendary boxer has become a successful businessman with several ventures which help him earn revenues. Mayweather has also been part of exhibition bouts with other popular stars to get people to buy the tickets to see him. In 2021, Mayweather fought YouTube superstar Logan Paul in an exhibition bout which helped him earn a lot of money.
This year, Mayweather is back with another exhibition bout with his former training partner Don Moore. The event was supposed to take place in May 14 but now has been rescheduled in May 21 in Dubai at the Burj Al Arab helipad.
