The report stated that Mayweather’s 2015 taxes are currently 15 months past due and that he made about $220 million from his fight with Manny Pacquiao in 2015 and still owes money to the IRS for it.
Naturally, because it’s what they do, both Floyd Mayweather AND Conor McGregor had to chime in and share their thoughts on the matter.
Mayweather did his talking in an Instagram post in which he also posted a picture of the receipts showing he had paid $26 million in taxes in 2015.
Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear, especially when it comes to media in this country. While everyone is counting my money and assuming the worst, these are the facts… Uncle Sam, received $26,000,000.00 from me in 2015! What else could they possibly want? I’m sure I would have been notified much sooner if there were any real discrepancies right? Bottom line, everybody just wants to be a part of the “Money May” show, including the IRS! That’s fine, you can crunch numbers all day but in the end, my empire is rock solid and intact! Now Calculate That! #TMT #FloydMayweather #TBE #Mayweather.
While $26 million is certainly a lot of tax to pay, something about that math doesn’t seem right. $26 million out of $220 million is just 13 percent and we know Mayweather certainly made more money than just from the Pacquiao fight that year. For example, Mayweather also made $32 million for fighting Andre Berto in 2015.
Perhaps his gambling losses lowered his overall income?
As for Conor McGregor’s take on Mayweather tax issues, it was typical Conor McGregor.
“I don’t give a fuck what he did. I don’t care what he done. He should have stayed retired,” said McGregor. “He’s fucked now. That’s the God’s honest truth. He should have paid his taxes and stayed retired and kept my name out of his mouth.”
Now tell us how you really feel about it, Conor. Oh, and never change.
Get another mirror in here. I’m an animal.
