$123 Million is a LOT of cash, and apparently Floyd Mayweather has that sum in one single banking account according to a report from ESPN writer Tim Keown. The story goes:
Mayweather has a single bank account with $123 million in it, according to an ESPN The Magazine feature by reporter Tim Keown.
Keown was with Mayweather in a Grand Rapids, Mich. Foot Locker when the boxer discreetly showed him his bank account receipt and said, “One account, baby.”
“I had heard that Floyd does his banking the old-fashioned way: going inside, talking to a real-life teller. He is also known to be a big proponent of maximum liquidity. Still, the amount of digits spread across the bottom-right corner doesn’t seem possible.”
Mayweather was the highest-earning athlete in the world from 2011 to 2012, making $85 million, according to Forbes.
It’s unclear what his exact net worth is, but it’s fair to assume that $123 million is a good chunk of it.
That net worth is set to grow even more in the coming weeks. Mayweather will have a $41.5 million payday when he fights Canelo Alvarez later this month, the largest guaranteed purse ever.
