Floyd Mayweather may be in retirement, but the former boxing champion is still in the limelight and likes to show off his fleet of cars.
TMZ caught up with “Money” Mayweather, March 27 evening in L.A.
The 39-year-old Mayweather’s night started at the Staples Center, with the star and his crew taking in a Lakers/Wizards game before hitting the Hyde Lounge on Sunset Strip.
On his way out, Mayweather gave TMZ a look at his fleet of cars beginning with the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. Then he showed off the Limited Edition Rolls-Royce Phantom, his Bentley Mulsanne, and his Rolls-Royce Drophead coupe.

Mayweather, who retired with a perfect 49–0 record last year, told TMZ he still makes seven figures a month from “smart investments.”
The always-entertaining Mayweather is worth a reported $650 million.

Mayweather also showed off his watch, which he said cost $2 million.
Mayweather started his pro career after winning Bronze in the 1996 Olympics. Two years and 17 straight wins later, the then-blue chip prospect beat WBC Super Featherweight Champion Genaro Hernandez for the title.
In 2001, in one of the boxer’s greatest performances, the 130-pound Mayweather decimated 33–0 Diego Corrales. Mayweather sent Corrales to the canvas five times in the match en route to a 10th-round TKO.

In 2007, Mayweather fought Oscar De La Hoya for the WBC Super Welterweight title. Although the established De La Hoya was—at that time anyway—the main draw, Mayweather won via split decision and became a major star with the win.
In 2015, Mayweather, who had been criticized for not always fighting the most worthy opponents, finally agreed to fight the popular Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather won the fight and earned an absurd $250 million in the process.
Although he’s in retirement now, it’s been speculated a rematch with Pacquiao (and all the money that would come with it) could possibly get him back in the ring.
