    will the tales of boxers' lives and fortunes misspent never end?

    Damn.. I thought he got more than 20 million from the WWE for last year's Wrestlemania appearance. That was in April.

    no surprise at all...... he acted like such an asshole during that 24/7 HBO show, bragging about spending 10k a week in casinos. ;D

    we will likely endure watching another pathetic figure of a boxer fighting until age 50.

    "In August, in a story that made headlines on newscasts around the world, one of Mayweather's Las Vegas homes was robbed of what was reported to have been $7.1 million worth of jewelry. He later offered a $100,000 reward for information in the case that would lead to an arrest or conviction, but the crime has yet to be solved."

    That's a lot of jewelry. especially in the eyes of someone who's only piece of jewelry is his high school ring. I'm sure he still owns millions of dollars more in jewelry. One would think that's where to start in trying to payback the IRS. And if he didn't have insurance on the stuff that was stolen, he's an even bigger idiot.

    I wonder if he had exorbitant tiger care fees as well.

    Eh, I'd feel bad for him if.....No, wait, there's no situation I'd feel bad for him in.

    You get rich enough to retire, you should take care of your money to make sure it stays that way.

    The $20 Million deal with WWE was a well known publicity deal. He never got close to 20 million from them.

    Maybe not, but he was getting a lot more than per diem from them, too.

    FWIW, his "match" was unwatchable and nearly ruined 'Mania.

    Owing taxes doesn't mean he is broke.
