Floyd "Money" Mayweather

According to this article, he can't afford to pay his 2015 income taxes. He has asked the IRS for a temporary reprieve and will pay after his fight with McGregor.

What a dope

What do you expect when you give an idiot a large sum of money?

A friend of mine watched him spend $100,000 in a jewelry store in Vegas in less than 20 minutes. Said it was the most bizarre thing he'd ever seen.

I think I remember Scotty Pippen spent like 4m or more on a Jet. It came busted or something and it never flew.. Athletes have some weird spending habits, often end up broke.

Well whatever amount of money you spend in a jewelry store you're probably gonna spend it in less than twenty minutes.

I never spent anywhere $100,000 in a jewelry store, but whatever amount I ever spent, it happened in way less than twenty minutes.

Took me at least 20 minutes to pick out any piece of jewelry I ever bought my wife. And those were individual pieces. Floyd went in and bought multiple pieces for multiple people in his entourage. When you consider most jewelry is around $1k to $3k, that's basically one piece of jewelry every minute. That's crazy.

It's possible. Still a really good example of how shitty the guy is with money.
