Mayweather isn't throwing away what he's staked his whole career on for a few more dollars. Also pretty sure he's already got a lot more than a hundy mil in the bank.

Actually, he's got a lot less than a hundred million in the bank, unless he likes playing games with the IRS (doubtful).

It's common for wealthy people to have relatively low amounts of liquid assets (as a percentage of their wealth), but it's also common for people who spend their money in foolish ways (like he appears to) to not be anywhere near as wealthy as they claim.

I more or less agree. I didn't mean that Mayweather literally had over 100 mil sitting idle in a bank account - that would be pretty dumb of him. I just don't buy that a guy who is supposed to have made upwards of $400 mil against Pacquiao alone is struggling to pay a tax bill:

Mayweather is a shrewd guy. People hate on him (understandably), but he is a smart bloke who has been consistently good at making a lot of money. I'm sure the IRS is after him, and I'm sure that most of what he earns is put through enough shell companies etc that they'll struggle to catch up with him. There's just no way Mayweather has failed to get himself a good lawyer and a good accountant.

Seriously rich guys get to tell the tax man what they are prepared to pay, and give a take it or leave it offer. I suspect Mayweather will do the same thing with the IRS on this one.
