So would it be foolish to put any money down on McGregor somehow pulling off the miracle upset? I have a few hundred dollars in play money, should I just make some sort of safe bet on Mayweather or roll the dice with McGregor?

He already long ago made enough to never have to get out of bed for the rest of his life. But, who knows? He apparently spends up to $10 000 a month on haircuts.

At first glance it seems that Mayweather is gonna be like those athletes that ends up broke in their retirement years, having to auction off their memorabilia to pay off their creditors. But he earned over $300 million in 2014/2015 alone, and this McGregor fight will probably get him another 6-figure million dollar amount. A lot of those "broke former sports star" stories involve athletes who earned an amount in the low millions. Mayweather is in another tier.

Plus my gut tells me Mayweather is a lot more business savvy than he lets on. Owns a boxing gym, runs Mayweather promotions, knows how to build hype and market stuff.

So is he doing the smartest things with his money? Probably not, but I'm sure he's done stuff to make sure future Mayweather Jr will be just fine.
