is probably livid after his customized van was set on fire following an attack by an arsonist.
The retired boxing champ was visiting Birmingham with The Money Team when the group’s signature TMT vehicle was targeted by flamethrowers. Law Enforcement released a statement to ESPN, saying, “Police are investigating an arson attack on a vehicle parked at a Birmingham hotel. Offenders smashed the window of the vehicle, a people carrier, before pouring accelerant inside and setting it alight.”
According to reports, offenders smashed the window of the vehicle before pouring accelerant inside and setting it alight. The statement continued, “Enquiries into the fire, which caused extensive damage to the vehicle belonging to a guest, are currently on-going and police are examining CCTV from the area. Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.”
Floyd has yet to speak out about the vehicular L, but judging by the amount of cars he already owns, his TMT van won’t be missed. Plus, the show must go on. The next stop on Floyd Mayweather’s UK tour is London’s O2 arena on Monday.

Not many celebs will willingly be in attendance at Donald Trump
‘s inauguration next week, but one star claims he’ll be there for sure.
According to TMZ, Floyd Mayweather says he’ll be right in the middle of the action for Donald Trump’s inauguration in D.C. next week. The boxer even revealed he’s already got his tuxedo picked out. The President-elect and the billionaire fighter have been friends for a while now, and grew closer after Trump supported him during the Manny Pacquiao showdown.
As for which political party he reps, Floyd wouldn’t say, but he responded, “Barack Obama was a good president and hopefully, Donald Trump is a good president.” He added, “We don’t know what can happen in life. Only thing we can do is keep our fingers crossed, pray and hope for the best.”
As we previously reported, Trump’s team has been having difficulty securing talent to publicly support his presidency during the inauguration on January 20th. Will you be watching?

threw Chris Brown
‘s precious daughter Royalty
into the middle of their ugly feud.
The rapper hit Instagram this morning with a photo of C.B.’s little girl that he got from her mom’s Instagram page. Oddly enough, the cute pic had Floyd Mayweather and Money Team tags on it – a reference to the artists’ proposed celeb boxing match to settle their score. Soulja’s message? Even Royalty is on his side.
TMZ spoke with Chris’ baby mom Nia Guzman to see why, of all people, she’d tag Floyd in Royalty’s pics. “So, does Nia want Chris to get his ass kicked? Probably,” the site reports. “But we spoke to her, and she says her Royalty pic had nothing to do with Chris and Soulja’s celeb boxing match. Nia says she and the kid have been hanging out with Floyd recently … and ‘Floyd is investing in Royalty’s future.’”
Of course, Breezy didn’t let the diss go unchecked. See Soulja stoop way too low for our tastes below, plus what Chris has to say in the video that follows.
What happened to Soulja’s apology and turning over a new leaf? That didn’t last long.

When will celebs realize arguing “All Lives Matter” is not a good move, considering every week another unarmed Black man is shot by the police? From Jennifer Lopez to Raven-Symone to Fantasia, “All Lives Matter” has resulted in serious backlash.
Well, add boxer Floyd Mayweather to the list of foolishness. He recently went on a bizarre rant about All Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter. See for yourself in the YouTube clip below:
We can hear Twitter raging now! Floyd’s strangest comment is, “Follow directions, follow order.” Not sure if Mr. Mayweather has read a news article on Black men being shot by the police, but many of the victims are complying, yet still being killed.
Have several seats, Floyd!

Floyd Mayweather has the nickname “Money” for a reason. The prized boxer is looking for ways to avoid paying for the rising prices in Las Vegas strip clubs after checking his expenses over the past year. Hey, it is a new fiscal quarter, after all.
Last month, Money’s moneyman requested a $20,000 tax write off for the stacks of bills he threw around a Vegas strip club last year. DailyMail reports that Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club received a 1099 from Mayweather Promotions LLC.
Club owner Jason Mohney told DailyMail he was stunned. “I feel insulted, we throw him all this free stuff and he slaps me with a $20,000 tax bill, what the hell is that,” he said, adding that the cash was “distributed” directly to the dancers, many of whom grabbed the bills off the ground and took them home in garbage bags, and therefore untraceable at this point.
Now, it seems, Mayweather is looking for avoid the middle man altogether. He announced on Instagram that he is preparing to go into business for himself. “I am just months away from opening my very own strip club in Las Vegas,” he wrote.
Maybe the $20,000 tax request is just a small way to try and get ahead of his future competition. With Mayweather’s boxing career all but over, it will be interesting to see how much of his intensity and perfectionism he pours into his future as a strip club owner.

Floyd Mayweather has money to blow.
The famed boxer rakes in millions of dollars a year for floating around the ring trying not to get punched. Other than his elite boxing skills, he’s also known for his creative flexing when he poses with his money and some of the crazy things he decides to buy.
There’s a reason he’s the head honcho of the Money Team. Here are some of the craziest ways Pretty Boy Floyd has flexed his overwhelming wealth:
Spending $1 Million on a Hublot watch.
When your hands are your money makers, it’s only right that you make sure your wrists are just as important. During a shopping spree in Dubai this week, Floyd decided to drop $1 million on a diamond encrusted Hublot watch. According to TMZ, the watch was just one of the outlandish things he bought during his overseas trip, which included another $400,000 on various other items.
Betting $1.1 million on a college football game.
Floyd has always been sure of himself, so why not put some faith in someone else for once? During the 2013 football season, Floyd bet on a game between USC and Oregon. But he didn’t bet a few hundred bucks, instead he gambled just over $1.1 million. Luckily, Oregon beat the Trojans on the road, 62-51. Floyd also enjoyed watching it. When asked about the ordeal on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, he nonchalantly said, “It was a cool game.”
His jewelry has to match his fleet of cars. Floyd’s always showing off his white car collection, which consists of 8 vehicles. But none are as impressive as his Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. The hyper car reportedly cost $4.8 million and there are only two in the world. But after making nearly $200 million from the Pacquiao fight, he can definitely afford it.
That time he had $123 million in his checking account.
Floyd must’ve never learned to diversify his bonds. In 2013, an ESPN writer accompanied the Money Team on a visit to a Footlocker in Grand Rapids. Just to flex, Mayweather showed the writer his bank account receipt, and after getting past the sheer amount of digits there were, the writer realized he had $123 million in his checking account. Floyd smiled and said, “One account, baby.”
When the heavyweight spends, it’s not always on himself. Floyd decided to buy his son a golf cart. But not just any golf cart, a Bentley golf cart. We’re not even sure if his son even plays golf or if he’ll use his new set of wheels to just cruise around the Mayweather estate. It’s a win-win situation.
