AIR MAYWEATHER, Floyd’s private jet, has become a casino for high stakes games of poker.
The boxing legend, 45, is known to own a stunning array of luxury toys and is reported to have a net worth of £560million.
Mayweather posted a photo of a somewhat ridiculous poker game from his jet
Back in April 2020, he posted an Instagram snap of him playing a friend on his private jet with stacks of cash around them.
He captioned the shot: “On my private jet playing a private game of poker against @tmtbside7 he thought he had me with his full house, but I smoked him with a 4 of a kind.”
Mayweather claims he beat his opponent with a stunning four-of-a-kind hand of aces, beating an also staggering full house of kings and aces.
Such an unlikely scenario led to sneaky suggestions from Mayweather’s 28.7million followers that the game wasn’t all it seemed.
But the American’s wealth is pretty undeniable in the face of his lavish lifestyle.
Not only does he own the £50m Gulfstream G650 jet, dubbed Air Mayweather, which he bought as a birthday present to himself in 2018 – he reportedly has a second jet worth £25m for his entourage to follow in.
The plane is emblazoned with his TMT ‘The Money Team’ logo and his undefeated 50-0 professional boxing record.
Carpets featuring the same number are rolled out for fliers as they embark and it is even stitched in the sleeves of the staff who serve him as he jets around the world.
Mayweather is set to take on ex-Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers in his fifth exhibition bout on Saturday.
‘Money’, whose last professional fight was against Conor McGregor in 2017, most recently faced YouTuber Deji.
He has also been linked to a rematch with Manny Pacquiao, who he beat in 2015.
The Filipino icon was beaten by 50-0 Mayweather in 2015, which ended five long years of waiting.
Pacquiao told the Daily Mail: “The Floyd fight, I am not sure a real fight is going to happen anymore. He doesn’t want to.
“He would maybe do an exhibition. There is a chance for an exhibition fight to take place. That is possible. But, a real fight, I don’t think will happen.”
Mayweather gifted himself the £50m jet back in 2018

Because they cause great pain, elbow strikes are extremely effective. You can deliver an elbow strike directly or indirectly. Directly refers to hitting your opponent with the forearm, while indirect means you hit him using another part of your arms.

The Body Movement
Boxers must maneuver around their opponent to win fights. This involves changing positions, speed, rhythm and timing.
To increase his punching power, a boxer rotates when he throws a punch. Depending on what punch is being thrown, the speed of rotation varies.
The timing of each punch will determine the effectiveness and efficiency of a combination. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.
