- Floyd Mayweather fought Aaron Chalmers in his only exhibition fight of 2023
- The American did not skimp on publishing his enormous tax bill on social networks.
- The Michigan-born fighter retired with an undefeated professional record of 50-0.
Floyd Mayweather has publicly revealed on social media that he has paid a whopping eight-figure sum in taxes over the past year.
Mayweather is known as one of the richest athletes in history and his impressive feats in the ring earned him huge fight earnings; the fighter coined the nickname “Dinero.”
Although retired from the professional game, Mayweather has returned to the ring for a series of exhibition fights, in addition to owning several businesses and owning multiple properties.
Reports in December suggested a deal had been reached to rematch Manny Pacquiao in an exhibition clash in 2024, believed to be in Japan, as the two rekindle their rivalry later this year.
Mayweather, however, has spared no effort on social media in flaunting how much he’s been earning by posting a photo of his tax check, accompanied by a typically sassy and possessed caption.
Floyd Mayweather took to Instagram to post his massive eight-figure tax bill for 2023
The American retired from professional boxing in 2017 with an undefeated record (50-0)
“Just before I paid that light million and change for those little Super Bowl things, I had to pay the IRS, aka Uncle Sam, $18,047,181 (£14.3m),” he wrote on Instagram.
“This is what I owed in taxes while I was retired, so imagine what I was paying when I was activated.”
Mayweather had been busy on social media all day Thursday and earlier posted another invoice, this time for the purchase of a suite to watch the Super Bowl in Las Vegas with 34 friends.
“I don’t kiss ass and I never have to beg for anything, especially not to get a Super Bowl suite.”
‘I don’t mind accepting invitations sometimes, but one thing is for sure… The person who pays does everything he says.
‘So, I get My own seats and suites so I can do whatever I want and invite whoever I want!’ I’m lucky enough to take 34 people to experience the first Super Bowl in Las Vegas!’
He was quick to add the company’s price at the bottom, which was: “$1,131,000.00 (£896,000)”.
It’s an eye-watering tax bill for a year in which Mayweather only managed to fight once in all of 2023.
The Michigan-born fighter (50-0) faced Aaron Chalmers in February in an eight-round no-goal fight.

‘Money’ faced MMA fighter Aaron Chalmers in early 2023, his only exhibition fight of the year
The showdown with the former MMA fighter was Mayweather’s first fight in the UK, but the fight was overshadowed due to the significantly low number of fans in attendance.
Despite the low attendance, the pair eventually went head to head and completed all eight rounds. Even after turning 46 during fight week, the 50-0 former professional boxer showed that age is just a number and he would go on to control the exhibition fight.
While Mayweather was unable to land the knockout blow, the American gave the former MMA fighter a boxing lesson, as Chalmers struggled to land a clean blow.
He was scheduled to face John Gotti III later in 2023, but the fight was canceled after too much trash talk between the two sides.
