Money

The Life and Fast Times of Floyd Mayweather Jr

 

eBook also available from the iBookstore

'Money is the most thorough book about Floyd Mayweather that we’re likely to see for a long time' - Ring Magazine

Floyd Mayweather Jr’s father was a boxer, as were his two uncles. His dad also dealt drugs and one day brought his work home with him, when he used his son as a human shield to stop a rival dealer from shooting him. The gunman instead shot his father in the leg, curtailing his own ring career.

Floyd Mayweather Jr has never married, has four children by two women, and is a habitual gambler, known to win and lose millions on a single half of US football or basketball. He is obsessed with money, almost as obsessed as he is about protecting his unbeaten record and his staggering aim to go 50 professional bouts without defeat, a goal that he intends to achieve in late 2015, just shy of his 40th birthday. Tris Dixon explores his extraordinary life story in this searing, insightful and often brutal exposé of one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen.

Tris Dixon is the former editor of Boxing News and has covered the sport for nearly two decades. He was the ghostwriter for Ricky Hatton’s recent bestselling autobiography, War and Peace, and is a regular pundit on Sky Sports’ boxing shows, Big-Fight Special and Ringside. He is also often a guest on CNN, TalkSport, Sky News and other mainstream outlets and he has been ringside at major fights on both sides of the Atlantic since 2000, covering the sport on four continents and in more than a dozen countries.
