Floyd Mayweather has taken to social media to post an alternative New Year’s message to his followers, insisting his mind will still be focused on money in 2018.
The 40-year-old could be seen looking away from the camera while wearing an outlandish suit and commented that a successful 2018 for him would be adding to his already enormous bank balance.
‘Everyone likes to say “Happy New Year”…I like to say “I’m happy getting new money every year!”,’ Mayweather posted on Instagram.
‘Why should I look in the camera? That’s not where the money is.’
The American is currently enjoying time off after he beat Conor McGregor in one of the biggest sporting spectacles of 2017 and it remains to be seen whether the duo will come face to face again.
Prior to his most recent fight it was estimated Mayweather’s career earnings had reached $700million, with the contest against McGregor seeing him earn upwards of $300m.
Mayweather revealed earlier this week that signing with boxing promotion company Top Rank was the biggest mistake of his career.
He bought himself out of his Top Rank contract in 2006, taking himself out of promoter Bob Arum’s control and going on to be come the highest paid fighter of all time.
‘As of today, the worst thing I ever did in my career was sign with Top Rank,’ Mayweather told FightHype.
‘One of my family members was money hungry and went behind my back. That’s the worst thing I ever did.
‘The worst thing I ever did was sign with Top Rank, because I was destined to be big anyway.
‘I was destined to be a superstar anyway.’
