World-famous boxer and domestic violence enthusiast Floyd Mayweather has wasted no time in flossing some not-very-hard-earned cash from his recent bout with Irish egomaniac and flamboyant MMA striker Conor McGregor, and it's only further proof that money can't buy class or style. Reportedly setting the world champion back US $26 million, his new Hollywood digs, the "Money Mansion", boasts a 20-person cinema, a motor court and a porte cochére, something so fancy even I had to Google it (it's not as impressive as it sounds, unless you're in 1743).
This is the house that 'money' built.
Look, I'm not denying the guy his titles – he's evidently a great boxer, but when you've been busted for treating your women outside the ring the same, if not worse, as your opponents in the ring, then you're an arsehole, no matter how fancy your crib is. Furthermore, the fickle Floyd picked 'Money' as his nickname. I mean, c'mon dude, have some more imagination than that.
Located in Beverly hills the 15,096 square-foot estate has been dressed up by designer-to-the-stars and person-with-most-appropriate-name-for-profession Nile Niami (pronounce Neil Nee-yah-me? Maybe we'll never know.) In addition to the above, it features a cocktail bar, wine cellar, gym, various living areas and guest rooms but, most hilariously, I shit you not, a library. For all the reading he does.
What's even more irksome about the whole thing is that his new place has been described as, and I paraphrase, 'in-restraint' compared with his Las Vegas mansion, which he's named the "Big Boy Mansion" (apparently it features a 12-person shower). Cool.
With all the hype now finally settled from the Mayweather v McGregor circle-jerk, we can hope that this is one of the last times we see old mate in the news dropping stacks for a headline and flaunting his riches, though I have literally zero faith in that being even slightly the case.
