Here’s unnecessary proof that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has more money than the rest of us.
The retired boxing legend used Instagram on Tuesday to share an image of a $100 million check made out to him. The check’s note claims it’s for earnings from his May 2015 win over Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather boasts about his riches but disguises it as a message to his haters.

Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man's legacy instead of trying to write their own. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh. This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of. Y'all still have to work however, I'm happily retired. At the end of the day, it's them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the jokes on you. I've made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn't read, write, or count. Y'all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y'all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y'all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y'all charter jets and we own jets. #TMT
Mayweather reportedly made over $220 million from the fight with Pacquiao, who also received over $100 million for the much-hyped event.
Mayweather defeated Andre Berto in Sept. 2015 and subsequently retired with a 49-0 record.
We get it, Mayweather, er, “Money.” You have plenty of it.
