How boxing legend Floyd Mayweather secretly tipped waitress $10,000 so she could undergo procedure to help her exercise | The Sun
7th November 2022

FLOYD MAYWEATHER is well-known to enjoy the lavish lifestyle – but he is not shy of sharing his wealth.

The boxing legend, whose final victory over Conor McGregor cemented his legacy at 50-0 in 2017, returns to the ring for his latest exhibition on Saturday against Deji, brother of social media sensation KSI.


Mayweather, 45, amassed a huge fortune during his iconic career and is allegedly worth £510million.

But a story previously emerged showing the usual trash-talking fighter’s much kinder side after he secretly tipped a waitress $10,000 to undergo a procedure to help her exercise a decade ago.

John Shahidi runs his own company which manages YouTube stars, and it was him who shared the tale on the Impaulsive podcast after meeting Mayweather in LA.

After discussing how they can work together over a bite to eat, the former five-weight world champion asked the waitress what she would do if she had all the money in the world to improve her life.

She declared she would get rid of her credit card but also undergo a procedure to enable her to exercise better.

Shahidi says Mayweather asked how much it would cost, to which she said between six and seven grand, leading to "Money" placing a $10k tip at the bottom of the bill.

The YouTube expert claims he told Mayweather to contact the media over his gesture.

He also explained that the world should know that Mayweather often does this sort of thing.

But the undefeated icon replied: “No! You are not to ever do that.

“No-one can ever know that I ever do that. That’s for me, you and her to know.”

Mayweather has recently revealed talks to fight in the UK in February after his exhibition with British YouTube boxing star Deji.

He has already had four exhibition bout since officially retiring in 2017 which have taken him to the Far East, America and now Middle East – but the UK could be next.
