Floyd Mayweather says the exhibition fight business will be VERY good to him in 2019 — with 4 or 5 bouts lined up this year, which will pay him around $80 MILLION!!!
Remember, Floyd says he got $9 mil for tuning up Tenshin Nasukawa during a New Year’s Eve exhibition match in Japan … and he’s going BACK to Japan to fight again in July.
This time, Floyd says he’s fighting a former Japanese boxer (he’s not 100% sure who the guy is) — but tells us he’ll cash a $10 million check to go 3 rounds with his mystery opponent.
And, that’s just the beginning … Floyd says he’s got more fights lined up too.
So, why not book another full 12-round pro fight with a real contender? Floyd says he can make real money doing the exhibition fights with much less risk to his health.
“It’s all about being smart. My faculties are very important.”
Stay tuned …
Floyd Mayweather Gunning to Sign Zion Williamson to The Money Team
Sounds like Floyd Mayweather wants to be the next big sports agent — and he’s already making his pitch to sign future NBA superstar Zion Williamson.
Floyd already runs Mayweather Promotions — and reps a bunch of young boxing stars. But, Floyd tells us he’s been working with an NBA agent named “Earl” and he has serious interest in signing basketball players.
So, what’s the pitch? Floyd says he can teach young superstars like Zion to not only make a ton of money during their careers, but he’ll make sure they’re financially set in RETIREMENT too.
“If Zion signs with me, you got my word that he gonna have a comfortable life when he’s on the court and off the court … if he did.”
To prove his point, Floyd busted open a backpack filled with about $500,000 in cash.
Don’t worry, Floyd says he’s not worried about being robbed because he’s smart when it comes to personal security — with TMT bodyguards like Jizzy Mack and Badou, in addition to undercover police officers.
Floyd will obviously have competition when it comes to signing Zion — every major agency in the world is trying to land the Duke superstar … including Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports.
Floyd Mayweather Drops Fortune at Gucci, Rips Blackface Boycott
Floyd Mayweather says he doesn’t give a DAMN about the Gucci boycott — telling TMZ Sports no one tells him what to do or what to buy … and that’s why he dropped a FORTUNE at the store last night.
The boxer — along with his entire TMT crew — rolled into Gucci in Bev Hills … and when we told him about all of the stars calling for a Gucci ban over a sweatshirt that resembled blackface, Floyd scoffed.
“I’m not follower, I do what the f*ck I wanna do,” Floyd told us.
When we told Floyd that stars like T.I. and Spike Lee would be upset with him, Floyd laughed.
“You said they’re gonna be upset with me? I love it, I love it, I love it. See, the thing is this, I live for myself. I do what I want to do.”
Outside the store, Floyd and his crew showed off a BUNCH of bags filled with Gucci — dropping a fortune on clothing and accessories.
“I’m not a follower,” Floyd added … “You know when everybody else they say, ‘Everybody gonna boycott?’ I say guess what, this boy gonna get on a yacht and live life.”
“We all know racism still exists but that’s not gonna stop my drive. I’ve got friends from all walks of life and to me of course, black lives matter first … but my thing is this, I’m gonna continue to go out there live life and be happy.”
He added, “Half of the people that’s on social media saying, ‘Don’t wear this, don’t wear that,’ I ain’t never seen any of them supporting The Money Team.”
After the Gucci run, Floyd went over to Neiman Marcus — where the store stayed open past the normal closing time so Floyd could shop.
Mayweather tells us he dropped $500k at Neiman. Good times.
