LAS VEGAS–It is surprisingly easy to underestimate Floyd Mayweather when you meet him in person.
The man is smaller than you think a famous boxer will be. He downplays his preparation for the massive Connor MacGregor match: saying it was mostly situps and pushups. He’s generally soft-spoken, not loud, and not rude. And he speaks in short, sometimes-disconnected bursts, not a little reminiscent of the current POTUS.
But 50 wins and zero losses.
But a net worth probably well over a billion dollars, with fight receipts over $700 million and extensive other investments, properties, and endorsements.
But the actions that back up the talk.
With a consistent track record of success over multiple decades, there’s clearly something that drives Mayweather to success. And he’s confident that the ingredients that have made him “Money Mayweather,” earning single-fight purses of over $300 million, will take his new VR-boxing-as-exercise venture to unprecedented heights in fitness.
