-However, Mayweather was quick to observe he was not out to show off but just to prove how much blessed he is
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is least concerned about a possible recession in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The pandemic has caused panic across the world as nations struggle to contain its spread after thousands contracting the virus.
The United States and many parts of Europe are among the worst hit regions, with the virus claiming thousands of lives in just weeks.
And as many grapple with the epidemic's possible effect on the global economy, Mayweather seems unfazed.
"Even with myself, [people] are like… 'Floyd gonna end up with nothing.' I made smart investments. That's why, right now, with this huge epidemic, with this huge s*** going on, crazy stuff going on, my investments are still paying off," he declared.
The retired American boxer took to social media to flaunt wads of cash and even boasted he will still be fine regardless of the economic times.
"In a recession, I can still feed my loved ones," he said.
Waving an estimated £48,000 in 100 dollar notes, the 43-year-old was quick to declare he was not showing off.
"This is not about throwing this in nobody's face or showing up, this is saying 'I'm blessed," he pointed out.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mike Tyson is not ruling out Deontay Wilder's chances of recording a victory against Tyson Fury in their trilogy fight, The Sun reports.
The Gypsy King dominated the Bronze Bomber in their second bout in February following a seventh-round stage.
But the Baddest Man on the Planet who celebrated Wilder's defeat to Fury at ringside believes his fellow American still has a chance.
Legit.ng also reported that Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight in boxing at the age of 20 after defeating Trevor Berbick in 1986.
He held the title for years until he was beaten by James Douglas but the former undisputed champion admits his lifestyle outside of the ring contributed to his downfall, Daily Star reports.
The 53-year-old said on a podcast that all of his money was spent on a lavish lifestyle that includes drinking, womanizing and extravagant food.
