Despite now saying he is happily retired at the age of 40, with his undefeated record of 50-0 that even surpassed the legendary Rocky Marciano, no one ever assumed that Floyd 'Money' Mayweather was ready to disappear from the limelight.

After coming out of retirement to set yet more records in terms of revenue and pay-per-view buys for a bout with UFC's Conor McGregor, Mayweather left with his legacy still intact along with a massive pay cheque of a rumoured $100 million.

This figure seems like life changing money to a normal person, but obviously the undefeated Mayweather's life is anything but normal.

Seen in a video released on Youtube, Floyd is beset by reporters firing a barrage of questions at him, ranging to whether the McGregor bout was indeed his last outing, to what he now does to keep himself entertained as a retired boxer outside of the ring.

However, it is his response when the question of what the first thing he bought was with his McGregor purse that shocked the reporter in true Mayweather fashion.

When asked of his first purchase, Mayweather states that he hasn't even touched the mountain of money yet, with the reporter thinking he was kidding him.

Mayweather states that he will go and cash the cheque tomorrow, and even makes mention of still having the cheque that he was awarded for his fight with Manny Pacquiao all the way back in 2015, where he scored a unanimous points victory over the Filipino fighter in a much anticipated bout at the time.

Over $100 million seems like an amount of money most can only dream of, but Mayweather's response ties in well with the lifestyle and image that he has portrayed over the many years of unchallenged success he has had in the ring.

Though, retired he shows no signs of going away, and when he finally does decide to cash those cheques, we may be in for some big announcements from the Mayweather team.
