Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the biggest star in boxing today. He’s won six titles in five weight classes. He’s never been beaten. His nickname is Money. He wears ostrich-skin trunks and chinchilla robes. He’s got a Rolls and a Bentley. If you ask him, he will tell you that he’s the best boxer ever—and now he’s out to prove that he’s the best fighter, too.
