Floyd Mayweather spends a fortune on a Super Bowl Suite
Floyd Mayweather just dropped a big sack for his own streak at the upcoming Super Bowl in Las Vegas this Sunday.
The boxing champion took to Instagram on Friday (February 9), sharing a photo of a wire payment made to Great Buy Tickets Inc.
The Super Bowl tickets are expensive
Mayweather spent $850,000 to get a room big enough for 34 friends, who will accompany him to the most prominent NFL event of the year.
A separate photo on the post also showed an additional $281k check.
Each ticket would cost Floyd about $33,000. According to the New York Post, that price tag is more than three times the average price of $8,600 for Super Bowl spectators in regular seats.
But when you’re Mayweather and you have a net worth of $1.2 billion, spending a thousand on a game is light work.
Mayweather said, “I don’t mind accepting invitations at times, but one thing is for sure… it’s the person who pays who says it all.”
“So, I get my own seats and rooms, so I can do what I want and invite who I want! I am blessed to be bringing 34 people to experience the 1st Super Bowl in Las Vegas.”
He then followed up with another post, showing how much he paid in taxes shortly before buying Super Bowl tickets.
“Right before I paid that light million and change for that little Super Bowl item, I had to pay $18,047,181 to the IRS aka Uncle Sam. This is what I had in taxes while retired so just imagine what I was paying when I was active. “
Here’s what a $2.5 million streak at the Super Bowl will bring
Floyd Mayweather and his team will be sitting comfortably in a luxurious room, where they will get a good view of the game and Usher at halftime performance. But apart from getting a good view of the field, paying the big bucks for one of these rooms comes with a number of benefits.
According to TMZ, there are a variety of Super Bowl VIP packages, with the highest worth $2.5 million. The press release claims that 20 people can be seated in this particular row, where there will be the least concern about food.
Reporter Luke Sawhookwhich was previewed earlier this week, says the premium rooms will include a range of delicious meals on the menu.
From lobster and crab to wagyu beef, BBQ burritos, seafood, and “bacon-covered hot dogs,” if there’s one thing their stomachs won’t be doing, it’s getting tired.
There will also be several options for sweet dessert, from cheesecakes to popcorn and ice cream.
Not to mention that the $2.5 million room also has a private bar with bartenders ready to serve drinks to guests throughout the evening.

With all the NFL games she’s been attending in the past couple of months in support of her husband, it seems like there was no chance she’d miss seeing him live in action on his big day.
