Published Add your comment

Floyd Mayweather is known to flaunt his extravagant wealth on social media, having most recently done so with a post showing him surrounded by $1 million in cash while laying on his bed.

The retired boxer who boasts a 49-0 record, provided another treat for viewers and fans, with an Instagram post of his luxurious private beach estate.

Sitting in a "handmade luxury lounge cube", the boxer brought attention to the "soft" sand underneath, imported from Caladesi Island, primarily for his multi-million dollar estate.

The island, located on the west coast of Florida, is not accessible by car and was voted the best beach in America in 2008.

In addition to showing his immense wealth, Mayweather took the opportunity to remind everyone just how fortunate he is to have this lifestyle, given his rather harsh upbringing.

Mayweather accompanied the image with a caption which read: "“It’s funny… when I was in high school, my grades were always mediocre. My focus wasn’t on getting the highest grades. I was focused on getting my mother off of drugs and my father out of prison."

The 39-year-old believes that he has earned his luxurious lifestyle after clawing through his difficult childhood and family issues.

He added: "Sitting in my handmade luxury lounge cube... counting my blessings; in the comfort of my custom private beach, laced with the softest sand you can find, imported from Caladesi Island, exclusively for my multi-million dollar tropical estate.

"I have one of my executive chefs, putting together a gourmet spread made for a King.

"Ultimately, when you think about it... this isn't bad for a $800,000,000 dropout!", whereby further stressing on his ridiculous wealth."

Despite now focusing on a life without boxing, it is safe to say the 39-year-old will enjoy a much flashier retirement than most, especially with an estimated net worth of around $300 million.
