In America, life is all about perception. Those people in the movies? Yeah, they're mostly hollow, self-centered simpletons...but they look so beautiful and important on the red carpet! Those people we elect to represent us in Washington? Yeah, they're crooked, power-hungry liars who lick the boots of corporate lobbyists...but the speeches they give can be so inspirational! Those athletes on the field and court and in the ring? Yeah, they're juiced-up glory-hounding college dropouts...but they're champions! Of the WORLD!
The truth rarely overpowers the perception.
Which is why it's so funny that the planet's best pound-for-pound boxer goes by the nickname "Money". Sure, Floyd Mayweather is the undisputed undefeated champion of the world and one of the greatest at his craft who ever existed. But a more appropriate nickname would be Floyd "Really Good At Boxing" Mayweather. That's WAY more accurate than "Money". There are just far too many disgustingly rich people in this world to claim that name. It'd be like calling him Floyd "Tall" Mayweather because he's 5'8" and Manny Pacquiao is only 5'6". It's all relative. Yes, he's rich. But he's not rich rich.
According to Google, Floyd Mayweather has a net worth of $280 million. It is reported that he will make an additional $120 million by fighting Manny Pacquiao on May 2 in the most anticipated bout in recent memory. So let's make a very rough (and generous) assumption that he's worth a total of $400 million.
That's rich. But, again, the people below? They're rich rich. They're "Money". There are levels to this shit, and the best way to show that is with a visual comparison. So follow us as we travel around the world looking for wealth in the weirdest places and present to you 8 People You've Never Heard Of Who Are Way Richer Than Floyd "Money" Mayweather.
