Are you in the market for a mouthpiece? You can buy one here for just $9.99. But before you do, we should warn you: Even though that mouthpiece was made specifically for boxers, it's not the mouthpiece that Floyd Mayweather uses.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to afford the kind of mouthpieces that Money Mayweather uses during his fights. Reason being, he pays about $25,000 for the custom mouthpieces that he obtains from New York City-based dentist Dr. Lee Gause (Dr. Gause sells mouthguards, including a couple of custom TMT ones, here). And they cost so much because they often include diamonds, gold flakes, and—of course!—real $100 bills in them (Mayweather sure loves putting his $100 bills to good use, doesn't he?). They look like this:


So why in the world does Mayweather spend a small fortune on mouthpieces? Well, apparently, it's because they work.

"My career's gone on 19 years," he told TMZ Sports over the weekend, "and I've been able to preserve my smile."

But still, $25,000 for something that could realistically cost as little as $9.99? That's so Mayweather.
