Floyd Mayweather is the quintessential sports villain. He’s the guy you love to hate. Whether it’s the well-publicized arrests, horrendously discounting his domestic abuse history as "heresay," shamelessly flaunting his millions on Instagram, or charging $90 for the so-called “Fight of the Century,” Floyd Mayweather has made a lot of enemies over his two-decade career. But rather than eschewing this label, Mayweather embraces—and prospers—off of his bad-boy image. He made over $200 million dollars for his fight against Manny Pacquiao and has a net worth of at least $400 million. The only athletes who have made more are Michael Jordan and Arnold Palmer.
Despite what you see on Instagram and ESPN, there’s more to Mayweather than a bad attitude and hundreds of millions of dollars. His likes, dislikes, and philanthropic activities seem out-of-character for a person nicknamed “Money,” but they are all an important part of the man that is Floyd Mayweather.
Whether you love him or hate him, there’s a lot you may not know about him. These are 23 Things You Didn't Know About Floyd Mayweather.
