Floyd Mayweather welcomes Warren Buffett to The Money Team

Floyd-Mayweather-Warren-Buffett

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Warren Buffett probably don’t have a lot in common, but we know they can certainly relate to one another when it comes to wealth. On Tuesday night, the two incredibly rich men got together to discuss finances.

“I had a great meeting with the $66.9 billion dollar man, Mr. Warren Buffett,” Mayweather wrote on Instagram. “We talked about how we could turn a $100 million of my assets to $1 billion. Mr. Warren Buffett is the original founder of The Money Team, he’s just one of my billionaire buddies.”

Buffett, 83, is the most successful investor in the world. We spend so much time talking about how ridiculously wealthy Mayweather is that we forget there are people out there who dwarf his net worth. Floyd’s estimated net worth of about $300 million is roughly 1/200th of Buffett’s $60 billion-plus.

Mayweather is right. Buffett is the original founder of The Money Team, even if he doesn’t own one of these.

Floyd Mayweather responds to Amir Khan saying Manny Pacquiao would be tougher

Amir Khan Floyd Mayweather

Amir Khan has been angling for a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. for about two years, but he’s still waiting for his day. His latest comments on the matter were not exactly well-received by Floyd.

Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) has won three fights in a row since firing ex-trainer Freddie Roach after consecutive losses in 2012. In comments made to The Guardian earlier this month, Khan indicated he preferred a fight with Manny Pacquiao over Floyd because it would be tougher for him.

“Boxing is all about timing and Manny and Floyd are getting older,” Khan told The Guardian. “Someone has to take their place. Mayweather would be a very technical fight, like a game of chess. But I think Manny would be harder. He’s much more aggressive and it would be more intense. But with my trainer Virgil Hunter I’m a much better and more defensive fighter.”

One thing to keep in mind is that Khan said Pacquiao would be a tougher opponent for him, not that Pac-Man is a better overall fighter than Floyd. Boxing, like many other competitions, is about styles and matchups. Regardless of that context, Floyd didn’t care for Khan’s comments.

“I saw the comments where he thought Manny would give him a tougher fight than me. I have no response to that. I will just remind him of those comments after I have beaten him,” Mayweather said to the Daily Mail in response to Khan.

The good news is that Floyd is still considering Khan as a future opponent.

“He is an exciting young fighter – but I don’t just fight anybody – they have to prove themselves.

“If you ask me will the fight happen – then I would say yes. I hope next year – but these fights are always about timing.”

Mayweather is facing Marcos Maidana in a rematch next month while Pacquiao is taking on Chris Algieri in November. Khan doesn’t have another fight scheduled yet, but he could try something with Kell Brook next year before hoping to win the Pacquiao or Mayweather sweepstakes. Maybe one day one of those fights will happen.

Floyd Mayweather responds to 50 Cent in typical ‘Money’ fashion

Floyd-Mayweather-paychecks

Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally fired back at 50 Cent on Saturday following several days of criticism.

The saga between them started when 50 told Floyd he would donate $750,000 to the charity of Mayweather’s choice if the champ could read a single page of a Harry Potter book without struggling. An old audio recording from a radio show later surfaced that featured Mayweather struggling to read some promos for the station.

What does Money Mayweather have to say about all this? He posted the photo you see above on Instagram, which shows two paychecks he received from recent fights. Most of us will never see that many zeros on a check in our lives.

“Read this $72,276,000.00,” Mayweather wrote. “God bless.”

Floyd may struggle with reading, but his math is pretty good. He may lack certain skills that we learn in grade school, but Mayweather certainly knows how to make money. No one can deny that.

Floyd Mayweather reading radio promos didn’t go well (Audio)

Floyd Mayweather honey coffeeRemember Thursday when 50 Cent had some fun with former best buddy Floyd Mayweather Jr. by challenging the boxer to read a page of Harry Potter? The rapper said he would donate big money to charity — $750,000 — if Floyd could read a page of the book without struggling. Now we know why he said that.

A show called “The Breakfast Club” on Power 105.1 FM realized that they had some audio of Floyd reading and played it on Friday. The audio shows Mayweather trying to read some promos/liners for the station.

Based on listening to the audio, Floyd really struggles to read the liner and has to start and stop multiple times. It sounds like he has a very low reading level and/or might have a learning disability.

Keep in mind a few things — Mayweather grew up with a boxing education and probably did not have much of an emphasis on schooling. His mother was a drug addict, his aunt died from AIDS due to drugs and his dad went to prison after being caught smuggling drugs. Floyd dropped out of high school to focus on boxing.

“I knew that I was going to have to try to take care of my mom and I made the decision that school wasn’t that important at the time and I was going to have to box to earn a living,” Mayweather told the New York Daily News in 2007.

Mayweather may struggle to read, and that can be a source of humor for many people because it’s one area where we can proclaim we’re better than the wealthy world champion boxer, but don’t let this audio fool you into thinking that Floyd is a dummy. He’s not the smartest guy, but he sure is one heck of a businessman. He’s a very sharp businessman.

Maybe being embarrassed by his inability to read will lead Floyd to work on his education when he’s done boxing.

50 Cent will donate $750K to charity if Floyd Mayweather can read one page of Harry Potter book

50-Cent50 Cent brought us his own version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Thursday, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. probably isn’t going to appreciate it. Rather than dumping a bucket of ice water over his head, 50 has offered to donate $750,000 to the charitable organization of Mayweather’s choice if Floyd can read one page of a “Harry Potter” book without messing up.

“Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f—ing up. lmao,” he wrote on Instagram along with the video you see above.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with their history, Mayweather and 50 Cent used to be best friends until they had a falling out. They have been cordial toward one another in the past, but 50 seems to be determined to get under Mayweather’s skin lately. The rapper was one of the people who called out Mayweather after Floyd shouted at T.I.’s wife on the red carpet at the BET Awards.

It should be noted that the Ice Bucket Challenge is a social media movement that has helped raise money and awareness for ALS, which is also known as Lou Gherig’s Disease. If 50 is willing to pay Floyd $750,000 if Mayweather proves he can read, we’re hoping he at least donates some money to the ALS Foundation.

Floyd Mayweather’s newest girlfriend Liza Hernandez is Jerry Buss’ ex

Floyd Mayweather Liza Hernandez

Floyd Mayweather Jr. maintains a heavy stable of girlfriends and is not shy about that fact.

The world champion boxer has espoused his views on polygamy and said he believes a man should be allowed to have as many girlfriends as he can afford. It’s that womanizing lifestyle that led his ex-fiancee, Shantel Jackson, to leave him. But Floyd wasted little time moving on, and the latest addition to his rotation is quite a notable one.

Though Doralie Medina aka “Bad Medina” still appears to be Floyd’s No. 1 girlfriend, another girl surging up the charts is a woman named Liza Hernandez.

Hernandez used to be one of former Lakers owner Jerry Buss’ most prominent girlfriends. She also has a long list of celebrities and athletes (mostly Lakers) with whom she’s been linked.

Hernandez made Floyd her “Man Crush Monday” this week, and Floyd returned the favor by making her his “Woman Crush Wednesday.”

Floyd even tagged Hernandez in a video three weeks ago implying that he may have bought a Bugatti for three women — Hernandez, Medina and one of his baby mamas, Melissia.

As far as we can tell, Hernandez has been part of “The Money Team” since at least last month.

Here they were on a jet in a picture Floyd’s daughter shared on July 12:

She was in another picture with The Money Team in New York a few days later. And just a few days ago she was photographed having dinner with Floyd’s daughter.

As mentioned, Hernandez had a very strong relationship with Jerry Buss. Head to Page 2 to see more about her relationship with Buss.

Floyd Mayweather starts each day with a woman giving him a bath (Video)

Floyd Mayweather bathFloyd Mayweather is either an overgrown child or wealthy individual with way too much money on his hands. Or both.

Floyd posted this comical video to Instagram late Wednesday night showing everyone how he starts his day.

“This is how I get my day started, everyday. – MR. MY LIFE IS THE SH*” he wrote on Instagram.

I’d player hate on the kid, but everyone needs someone to do their back. The only surprise is that he doesn’t have someone brush his teeth for him too.

The royal penis is clean, your highness.
