Floyd Mayweather’s girlfriend Doralie Medina is going to have to get used to flash, cash, and more flash. Floyd “Money” Mayweather was the highest paid athlete of 2012, raking in over $100,000,000. That’s….that’s a lot of money. Part of Floyd’s schtick is making people think he throws his money away, but I get the sense that he’s a keen businessman and has some wise investments. Doralie is apparently his massage therapist. She’s kind of weird looking, if you ask me. She’s definitely pretty, but she’s got that overworked, plastic vibe going. I’m sure she’s a nice lady, though. Sorry, Doralie.
Now, of course, he’s not frugal. He did just buy his third Bugatti Veyron, after all, one which he’s rumored to be giving to his girlfriend Doralie. That’s a little silly to me, but I don’t have a quarter of a billion dollars in the bank. In a recent Howard Stern interview, Mayweather talked about his biggest bets and his biggest losses, and he said he is up overall a few million dollars in his total gambling career, but that his biggest loss was “probably a million.” I’d say he is definitely addicted to gambling but not in the way that most people are. He’s a winner in the ring because of extreme discipline, and that discipline seeps into his lifestyle, including gambling. Still, it’s gambling, and you can lose a lot of money.
Speaking of losing some money, Floyd bought a $10,000,000 engagement ring for his ex-fiance Shantel Jackson and then dumped her because she had an abortion without asking him. It’s called the right to choose, Floyd, and a woman isn’t your property. It probably did piss him off that she didn’t tell him she was going to do it though. Floyd has said that he’s essentially pro-life, and that’s why he split up with Jackson. No comment.
Mayweather is undeniably one of the greatest boxers who ever lived. We can talk all we want about how he ducked out on a fight with Pacquiao when the two of them were in their prime, but he’s clever enough to know that he won’t be remembered for ducking out; he’ll be remembered for being an undefeated, fantastic boxer.
