Despite hanging up the gloves as a pro in 2017 after beating UFC star Conor McGregor, the 43-year-old is still in the business of making money.
A year after earning north of £300million against McGregor, Mayweather made £7m in just under two minutes against featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
And the all-time great is ready to do it all again, he he faces YouTuber Logan Paul in another exhibition bout in February.
To make sure his perfect 50-0 record stays intact, Mayweather was quick to remind fans his days as an active boxer are over.
But the chance to earn unforeseen amounts in money-spinning spectacles are too good to turn down.
Mayweather, uploading a video showing off his bling, wrote: "I retired from boxing but I didn’t retire from making money."
The former five-division champion claims he banked over ONE BILLION throughout his historic career.
And he slammed critics who accused him of somehow blowing his fortune.
Mayweather said last year: “It’s crazy. You guys hear things about ‘Floyd needs money'.
"I don’t need (anything) but I don’t mind making some more money. Apple is still making billions.
"When Apple went out and made billions, they didn’t say, ‘You know what? We have already made three or four billion. Now we’re going to stop.’
"They keep on making more billions.”
Mayweather was involved in the boxing's two richest fights, following the success of his wins over Manny Pacquiao, 41, and McGregor, 32.
But Fanmio, who are bringing the legend out of retirement, project they will smash PPV records with the help of social media sensation Paul, 25.
And in turn, it will mean the farcical mismatch would be the most profitable fight ever.
Solomon Engel, Founder and CEO of Fanmio, told SunSport: "We do see it breaking the record.
"We have projections which I don't want to comment on but we do see it breaking the record.
"I can tell you we are very bullish on beating that number and possibly by a long shot.
"We have already sold a great deal of PPVs, which is kind of unheard of early on.
"We are already seeing success in that area and between who the two fighters, between how we handle distribution we do see it breaking the record."
