Did Floyd Mayweather Jr. just tell the biggest lie of all?
No he may not have been checking his phone for $40 million deposits as he was walking to the ring, but as he once said, “it’s always about the money.”
During a conversation with BoxingScene.com’s Vadim Pushkin, Money Mayweather insisted that “health is more important than money.”
In the US there is a saying – money does not make the man, the man makes the money.
I made the impossible possible. Going into a match, I never thought about the money. I was thinking about the fans and how to beat the opponent. The goal was to provide for my family. But the money for me was not the most important thing. Right now my ultimate goal is to help other people, to help people in other countries. I left boxing because my health is more important than money.
Mayweather was in Russia for an attempt to successfully break the Guinness World Record for hosting the biggest boxing workout, and he continues to make headlines even after his retirement.
