Floyd Mayweather Jr. Biography

Floyd Joy Sinclair (his mother’s maiden name) was born on 24 February 1977, in Grand Rapids, Michigan USA. As Floyd Mayweather he is famously known as a world boxing champion, currently undefeated as a professional.

So how rich is Floyd Mayweather? Sources estimate that his current net worth is $500 million, accumulated during an outstanding boxing career beginning in 1996, however, this amount will rise considerably when his official earnings for his fight in May 2015 against Manny Pacquiao – reputed to be over $100 million for both boxers – is announced.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Net Worth $500 Million

Floyd’s childhood was unhappy as his mother used drugs, and he had a somewhat stormy relationship with his father (Floyd Sr.), who was jailed for drug trafficking in 1993. However, he inherited his boxing talent from his father and two uncles who were all boxers too. In his amateur career, Mayweather won three Golden Gloves Championships, in 1993, 1994 and 1996. He was controversially defeated in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games featherweight division final, after which he turned professional.

During his subsequent professional boxing career to date, Floyd Mayweather has won six world titles at different weights, the first within two years in 1998, the WBC Super Featherweight title against previously undefeated Genaro Hernandez, and the following year The Ring magazine named Mayweather ‘Fighter of the Year’. Floyd Mayweather has also been consistently named the best ‘pound-for-pound’ boxer in the world by authoritative sources. His net worth has grown commensurately with these and subsequent successes, and acknowledgements of his prowess.

As at April 2015, Floyd Mayweather’s professional record is 47 wins and no loses, so all his fights are impossible to cover, but his most memorable fights, including prize money where known, negotiated beforehand, have been against Diego Corrales (previously undefeated, 2001); Jose Luis Castillo (lightweight title, twice in 2002); Arturo Gatti (2005); Zab Judah (IBF welterweight title, 2006); Carlos Baldomir (WBC welterweight title, $8 million, 2006 ); Oscar de la Hoya (light middleweight title, $25 million, 2007); Ricky Hatton ($25 million, 2007); Shane Mosley ($30 million, 2010); Victor Ortiz (WBC welterweight title, $40 million, 2011); Miguel Cotto ($40 million, 2012); Robert Guerrero ($36 million, 2013); Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez ($41.5 million, 2013); Marcos Maidana (WBA welterweight and WBC super welterweight titles, twice in 2014).

Clearly, Floyd Mayweather is the highest paid sportsman in the world for single appearances, so there is no suprise that his net worth continues to rise – in fact, Forbes magazine estimates that Floyd’s career earnings amounts to more than $500 million, so one wonders why his current net worth isn’t higher. His contribution to the success of Pay Per View TV is also outstanding, taking part in several of the highest earning events.

Further, as if to confirm that Floyd Mayweather is indeed light on his feet, he appeared in “Dancing with the Stars” in 2007 with partner professional dancer Karina Smirnoff, finishing in ninth place. Floyd has also appeared in several TV documentaries profiling himself, plus making a few cameo appearances in movie and TV films.

Regretfully, over the years Floyd also has several convictions against him for domestic violence, including a short jail sentence and orders to perform community service.

In his personal life, perhaps it’s no surprise that Floyd Mayweather has never been married, as his list of girlfriends is legendary. However, he has two sons and a daughter with Josie Harris, with whom he has had an on-off relationship since school. Floyd also has a daughter with Melissa Brim.

1Refering to himself in the third person tense.
2Carrying stacks of US $100 bills
3Undefeated fight record
1The American fans would love to see me fight anybody.
2I'll back up anything my dad says.
3I'm not in this sport to take punishment.
4I loved competing and winning and also wanted to continue my career for the fans, knowing they were there for me and enjoyed watching me fight.
5I land a higher percentage of punches than any boxer in boxing.
6You can never overlook a guy.
7I like to play table tennis, spend time with my kids.
8I've set the model of showing fighters how they should conduct their business.
9Floyd Mayweather is in the sport to give great performances.
10I got a big mouth.
11I ain't never nervous. Never nervous.
12I'm a professional fighter and like most professional fighters I have had difficulties with my hands in the past.
13I don't adjust my training for any of my opponents. I don't watch films on my opponents.
14There comes a time when money doesn't matter.
15I basically raised myself.
16I'm always focused.
17You know, as a young child, I lay in my bedroom and I swore to myself then: 'I'm not going to smoke and I'm not going to drink.' And I said I'm not going to just say that when I'm a kid. I'm going to stick to that as an adult. I kept that in mind my whole life.
18I like to control my own personal life.
19I always put my boxing first.
20You know, everybody has a slogan, and once you beat people over the head with it so much, then that's what you'll eventually be called once you retire from the sport or whatever.
21When they put me on ESPN and they talk about negative things, or when they put me on TMZ and they talk about negative things, I'm just glad that I'm relevant; to have lasted this long being relevant.
22Nobody is faster than me.
23I think I already proved that I wasn't just fighting for the money, because I fought as an amateur. I fought 90 fights for free.
24I would lie in bed, and I was nine years old, and say to myself: 'I want to be the richest man in the world.' I've come a long way from there.
25A lot of times, in the beginning of my career, I put pressure on myself just because I wanted to perform so well. I just wanted to be perfect.
26Boxing is what pays my bills.
27My kids are the future of the Mayweather family and of the Mayweather brand. I feel our family is stronger if we stay together.
28I like fighters who come to fight.
29All the money I have, I got it legally.
30I've had boxing gloves on since before I could walk and been in gyms all of my life.
31I haven't took no punishment. There's nothing cool about taking punishment.
32I'm not in this sport to say a guy can beat me.
33I love basketball.
34When I was about 8 or 9, I lived in New Jersey with my mother and we were seven deep in one bedroom and sometimes we didn't have electricity.
35I push myself to the limit.
36Well, you've got certain obstacles that get in your way throughout your career, but you have to be a strong individual.
37Self-preservation is an important thing to me.
38In the end, you have to protect yourself at all times.
39People have said things about me, and wrote and criticized me about things in the past, but it goes in one ear and out the other.
40What's so crazy is when you give interviews to reporters that don't really care too much for you, basically what they're going to do is write what they want to write and discredit you. They're going to write and say what they want to say, no matter what you tell them.
41Some people are just right for you.
42When I step in the ring, I bring everything I have.
43Once I am in the square circle, I am in my home.
44I'm a boxer who believes that the object of the sport is to hit and not get hit.
45I feel like everybody is against Floyd Mayweather. I don't get any respect.
46I don't have to fight if I don't want to.
47I got a granite chin.
48Everywhere I go, I will make a good payday. But we got to choose the right opponent and the right time and the right venue.
49My skills are still my skills.
50I'm a man of my word.
51I want to be promoted in the urban areas. A lot of African-American people should know more about me.
52I am the best. There is nobody better than me.
53I knew boxing before I knew anything else.
54I come from a very rough background, and I'm saying that if you work hard and dedicate yourself that you can make it, too.
55You have to protect yourself at all times. What goes around comes around.
56If I'm scared and I'm a coward, why do you guys want to see me fight?
57My whole outlook on life is, never judge a book by its cover.
58You've got to have a villain and they'll always make me a villain. I'm used to it - it makes me work harder and it makes me fight harder.
59I'm always going to love my father.
60When I was in the ring at the Olympics, it was my father's words that I was hearing, not the coaches'. 'I never listened to what the coaches said. I would call my father and he would give me advice from prison.
61I think my grandmother saw my potential first. When I was young, I told her, 'I think I should get a job.' She said, 'No, just keep boxing.'
62There's ups and downs with boxing, layoffs are part of the sport and they can either help or hurt a guy.
63When people see what I have now, they have no idea of where I came from and how I didn't have anything growing up.
64If anyone has followed my career, they know that there's been a lot of obstacles and a lot of ups and down through my career. But day in and day out, and in the square circle, I went out there and always did my best.
65If you fight angry, you make a lot of mistakes, and when you fight a sharp, witty fighter like me, you can't make mistakes.
66You hear certain things, negative things, all the time that aren't true, but you never hear about the positive.
67Boxing is real easy. Life is much harder.
68I'm looking to expand my portfolio while I'm on top and while I'm young.
69Everything people say I couldn't do I've done.
70A true champion will fight through anything.
71You have good days, you have bad days. But the main thing is to grow mentally.
72Most people should be talking about how Floyd Mayweather is a great undefeated future Hall of Famer that's his own promoter and that works extremely hard to get to where he's at. Instead, all you hear is hate and jealous remarks from critics who criticize me and, you know, most of the time, the people that criticize me can't do what I can do.
73A true champion can adapt to anything.
74Don't ever know who you may meet, or just because a person may not be dressed up all fancy, don't mean they're not an important person. You just don't ever know who you're gonna meet in life. So that's why I look at everybody as equal. Can't just judge. I treat everybody with respect. Every man.
