With a reportedly $180 million raked in from his last fight, Floyd Mayweather is wasting no time dropping his boxing money into luxury Los Angeles real estate.
The boxer purchased a Beverly Hills mansion on North Crescent Drive for $26 million, just one month after defeating UFC fighter Conor McGregor, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The house has six bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a library, a wine cellar and a movie theater within its 15,000 square feet of living space. A swimming pool with a pool house and motor court can be found outside.
Los Angeles developer Nile Niami previously purchased and later renovated the property for $15.5 million in August 2014, property records show.
Hilton & Hyland’s Drew Fenton represented Mr. Niami, while Nichelle Robinson of the same firm represented Mr. Mayweather.
The lightweight champion retired from boxing in 2015, but made a comeback fight in late August, earning him millions. He has since announced retirement, again. [WSJ] – Natalie Hoberman
