about

Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather is one of the most successful professional boxers of all time. In September 2015 he defeated Andre Berto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to claim his forty-ninth professional victory in a glittering unbeaten ring career that has spanned two decades. Born into a boxing family that was barely surviving on the poverty line, Mayweather’s father had enjoyed a modestly successful career in the ring but had made ends meet on the street. When a rival drug dealer arrived at the house and threatened to shoot him, Floyd Mayweather Senior picked up his son and used him as a human shield. Such were the ashes from which Floyd was to rise. This is the remarkable story of Floyd Mayweather’s ascent from these bleak origins to become the highest paid sportsman on the planet. It is a story of ambition, greed, arrogance, abuse, extraordinary boxing ability and unrivalled ambition. In Money, Tris Dixon explores it all in a searing, insightful and often brutal exposé of one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen.
