Floyd Mayweather has again lived up to his ‘Money’ nickname by flaunting his wealth on social media.
Mayweather is set to return to the ring next month for an exhibition bout with YouTube sensation Logan Paul.
It’s been claimed that Mayweather is guaranteed $5m (£3.7m) plus 50 per cent of all PPV sales for their meeting.
And the 43-year-old, who regularly posts photos showing off his wealth, has done so again in a video on social media.
Mayweather can be seen in a diamond-encrusted watch with his chains also appearing to be worth thousands of dollars.
And, having originally called it a day in his boxing career, Mayweather captioned the video: “I retired from boxing but I didn’t retire from making money.”
Mayweather originally came out of retirement in 2017 to beat former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
He then beat kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition a year later and was ringside as Anthony Joshua stopped Kubrat Pulev last month.

Speaking to the Sun , Engel said: "We do see it breaking the record. We have projections which I don't want to comment on but we do see it breaking the record.

“I can’t tell nobody what to do and what not to do. Because when I do my exhibition, I don’t want anybody telling me what to do and what not to do.
"And I don’t want anybody telling me, ‘Ah, Floyd needs money,’ I’m OK, I'm great, I’m doing just fine.
"I got probably $1.3 million (£1m) [in cash right now] on me. I’m Floyd 'Money' Mayweather."
