What!!! Floyd Mayweather buying 100 cars ? What is he doing with it. But wait for a moment, is it true ?
Briefly, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is an American professional boxer. He is currently undefeated as a professional and is a five-division world champion, having won ten world titles and the lineal championship in four different weight classes.
Being unbeaten in 47 fights so far till date, on May 2nd 2015, he will engage Manny Pacquiao of the Philipines in a £332 million clash.
Boxing is not only is passion, owning cars is one of his unbridled cravings. He buys cars after cars. Among his collections of cars is 16 Rolls Royce. “He’ll buy a car before a fight. He’ll buy cars after the fight. He’ll buy cars on holidays,” says Josh “Chop” Towbin of Towbin Motorcars in Las Vegas.
Towbin Motorcars isn’t about pass up a sale when it comes to Mayweather, its executives tell USA TODAY Sports. Sometimes he calls and wants to go car shopping at 2 a.m. The dealership is happy to oblige.
“We never know when Floyd will get the bug to go car shopping,” says Jesika Towbin-Mansour. But it’s worth the effort. A Rolls-Royce can run north of $400,000. A Bugatti passes $2 million like a speed bump — and Mayweather owns three of them.
The champ pays in cash — sometimes duffel bags full of it. There’s so much cash that the auto dealership had to buy a new cash-counting machine just to accommodate Mayweather. Plus, he’s picky about what he buys.
“These cars are an extension of his persona. They are the best of the best, as he is,” Towbin-Mansour says.
One thing with this is that he buys the cars from the money he earned legitimately in the boxing cage. It is his money and not stolen. However, one may say why spend all the money on cars and not use it to help the poor. But the fact here is that he is wasteful with his wealth though it is his own money. I don’t advise anyone to emulate him.
