The undefeated boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr. has become the co-owner of a DC hotel that was previously owned by the former US President Donald Trump. The former five-division world champion has made some huge investments since retiring from professional boxing in 2017.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. co-owns DC hotel
He has some major business ventures. ‘Money’ also owns a boxing promotional company known as Mayweather Promotions. He also owns a team in the NASCAR Cup Series called The Money Team Racing. WBA (Regular) Lightweight Champion Gervonta Davis is the most prolific athlete that Mayweather has promoted thus far.
During his phenomenal career, Mayweather was given the nickname ‘Money’ due to his whopping earnings as a fighter. In his last professional fight against Conor McGregor, the 2010 Fighter Of The Decade received a disclosed paycheck of $100 million.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently partnered with an investment group that includes fellow athlete and baseball legend Alex Rodriguez. The company decided to purchase a hotel in DC formerly known as “Trump Towers DC”. Trump owned the same hotel during his presidency, which he then put up for sale.
Alongside various business investments, he flaunts the 50-0 record. He also had some exhibition contests against celebrities and other retired boxers. Mayweather recently shared the ring with former sparring partner Don Moore in Dubai. He also famously took on YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul back in June last year.
Following his bout with Moore, Mayweather confirmed that he would return to the Middle East for another fight in 2022:
“I will bring another fight back this year… It’s a secret, I don’t wanna let the cat out of the bag right now. But we have an opponent and we had to choose a place and the place I would choose is the UAE.”
