Floyd Mayweather owns NINE skyscrapers including ‘tallest commercial building in US’ as he looks to make an extra $1BN

FLOYD MAYWEATHER revealed he owns NINE skyscrapers including ‘the tallest commercial building in the US’ as he looks to build his wealth.

The boxing legend, who officially retired 50-0 in 2017, has claimed to have made $1billion throughout his prizefighting career.

And in an interview with the WBC, when he attended their annual convention in Mexico, Mayweather admitted he does not miss competing.

And instead, he is focussing his efforts on adding to his property portfolio.

Mayweather, 44, said: “I’m OK. Floyd Mayweather made a lot of smart investments.

“One of the buildings I own is the tallest commercial building in America. So if you get a chance go to New York and check it out.

“This is my ninth sky scraper.”

The building Mayweather is referencing is the One Vanderbilt, a 93-story skyscraper in the Midtown Manhattan neighbourhood of New York City.

Mayweather has stakes in the building, which opened in 2020 after three years of construction.

After beating UFC star Conor McGregor, 33, the American icon hung up the gloves, but not for good.

He has since returned for two exhibition bouts, the first against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, which he won in a round.

But this June, Mayweather faced YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, in an extraordinary spectacle bout, giving away TWO STONE in size.

Paul managed to take it the full eight round distance, technically avoiding defeat.

But Mayweather boasted before and after about walking away from the 24-minute ring cameo $100m (£74m) richer.

Despite having no desire to continue professional boxing, the unbeaten great will never lose the passion for making money.

His right hand man Leonord Ellerbe told Insider last year that Mayweather’s ‘goal’ was to match the $1bn (£743m) he made in the ring, outside the ring.

As revealed by SunSport, the retired boxer’s businesses include a strip club, fashion line, real estate and music label.

He also has homes in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, including a £19m mansion in Beverly Hills.

Mayweather’s lifestyle also includes car collections of over £20m, a private plane and several watches, with one costing £16m alone.
