Pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. posted a picture on his Shots account showing just how the fighter earned his ‘Money’ nickname.

The 37 year-old, who recently defeated Marcos Maidana to improved his awesome record to 47-0, is seen sitting up in bed alongside wads of what look to be hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Mayweather earned a basic fee of $32m for his exploits against the Argentinian on September 13, but with the pay-per-view figures is set to bank a whole lot more.

The five-weight world champion has just two fights left until he steps away from the ring for good after what has been an outstanding and profitable career in the sport.
