Floyd Mayweather Next Fight For Money? Boxer Facing Money Issues?


There seems to be a ray of hope in the Floyd Mayweather vs. Gennady Golovkin match.

The comeback of Mayweather, however, is being linked with money. It is being speculated that the wrestler has been facing money issues, and hence, has agreed to return to the ring to face GGG. His father Mayweather Sr. finds it quite surprising that the face-off is being given so much importance although it is very apparent that the May/Pac numbers that were reported in May 2015 will be easily overcome if the match happened.

“There’s no reason for him to be fighting Triple G,” Mayweather Sr. said. “Everyone already knows that he’s got better skills than Triple G. There’s no reason for Floyd to fight him.”

In short, Mayweather versus GGG will be one of the best matches in terms of money. While Mayweather topped the list of the highest-paid entertainers in 2015, he has been reported to owe $1.4 million (AU$1.8 million) for a diamond neckpiece to a Las Vegas jeweler. The ex-champion, therefore, is believed to have chosen to return because of monetary requirements.

“A $1.4 million balance remains but Mayweather refuses to pay it despite repeated requests, The Jewelers says,” the site stated. The jewelers, according to The Gamers Drop, are now asking the player to pay not only the main price of the necklace but also the related interest and “damages for unjust enrichment, breach of agreement and bad faith, attorney’s fees and legal costs.”

In 2015, he earned almost $300 million (AU$392) for most of his matches with Manny Pacquiao. Like the former wrestler, GGG also holds a history of undefeated matches. Mayweather’s latest rival was Kell Brook from England. On September 10, 2016, the two fighters faced each other at London’s O2 Arena. The match between the two undefeated fighters will be an exciting watch expected to grab huge money from fans and followers.
