Mayweather took to his Instagram to show off his $100 Million Check supposedly gotten from the fight with Pacquiao in 2015.
Rumor has it that, he might come back from retirement for a massive fight either with UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor or with Manny Pacquiao. Either fight would surely rake in a windfall of money.
He however has this to share on Instagram:
“Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man’s legacy instead of trying to write their own,” Mayweather posted in response to the rumors about his return to the ring. “Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh. This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of.”
The check is dated May 2, 2015, which is the date that Mayweather defeated Pacquiao in a record-breaking blockbuster. The fight generated a record 4.6 million pay-per-view buys and brought in over $600 million in revenue. Maywather’s guaranteed purse for that night was $100 million and he ultimately raked in somewhere in the neighborhood of $220 million for the 36 minutes of work that ended in a one-sided decision victory.
Essentially, Mayweather is responding to everyone who has suggested that he’ll fight again for the money. But, as of right now, Mayweather isn’t interested and has more than enough money to hold him over without a return to the ring.
