Just the other day he made political headlines for defending Donald Trump’s sexual assaults accusations, now the 50 times undefeated boxer, Floyd Mayweather jr. is making property gossip headlines after purchasing a $26 million mansion at the heart of Beverly Hills.
According to a Hollywood reporter, Mayweather paid just a fraction of the $100 million earned from his August mega-fight against the MMA Conor McGregor for the almost 1600 sq. ft. House near the iconic and all-time fashionable Beverly Hills Hotel.
The home previously belonged to Marianne Metropoulos who moved out after selling it to a high-profile property developer, Nile Niami in October 2014. The mega-mansion developer furnished the house and turned it into what marketing taglines refer to as “French Modern Estate.”
Features of the mansion
Among the state-of-the-art features of this home include a master bedroom with an independent balcony, hardwood with marble flooring and floor-to-ceiling French doors. The house also has a large eat-in kitchen, an extra-large living room and guest room with 20-seat in-built home theater. In addition to all those, the house contains multiple fireplaces and a winding staircase connecting ground and second floor, with LED-lit handrails.
Built in the 1990s, the house sits on an extensive half an acre land with a large grassy backyard, a Spa, a huge swimming pool and a gym. It also contains a separate marble-topped bar lounge and a glass-faced wine cellar.
Floyd Mayweather jr., well-known for leading a social media documented life is said to have paid all-cash for the Beverly Hills home. In addition to this new home, the boxing legend owns multiple homes in and around Las Vegas.
