Floyd 'Money' Mayweather is definitely one to pamper his children. This Christmas, he gifted his 19-year-old daughter, Iyanna, a $152,500 Mercedes-Benz SUV. The 42-year-old undefeated former professional boxer took to Instagram on Christmas Eve and posted a picture of the vehicle, with a silver bow attached to the hood. He captioned the post: "MERRY CHRISTMAS @moneyyaya," and it received over 700,000 likes in no time. 

Iyanna, who's just about ready to leave her teens behind and step into the real world of grown-ups and responsibilities will sure be thrilled with this gift. She replied on one of her Instagram stories to the brand new 2020 AMG  G 63 SUV she received saying "OMG! OMG! OMG! Thank you so much, dad!". After that, she also went on Twitter the very next day and expressed her delight at this amazing gift of the new hot wheels. "I’m honestly having the best Christmas I couldn’t ask for a better one! I’m blessed & grateful!" she wrote.


This isn't surprising, coming from Mayweather. After all, it's not the first time the professional boxing promoter has showered expensive cars on his kids. In 2017, Mayweather gifted his youngest son, Zion, a $45,000 Mercedes C-Class Couple for the latter's 16th birthday party. Zion is interested in sports but never said that he was interested in a boxing career. Zion came into the limelight after a luxurious party his father arranged for him on his 16th birthday.


Just a couple of years before that, Mayweather gifted the same Mercedes Coupe to his oldest son, Koraun. This was after he'd gifted him a bronze Bentley golf cart for his 15th birthday.


It was in 2015 when Mayweather's chauffer revealed that his boss owned between two to three dozen cars. This extravagant collection of pristine automobiles includes the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which is worth $2 million, a 2003 Ferrari Enzo valued at $670,000 and five-Rolls-Royce worth more than $2 million. 


"My garage looking like an indoor dealership with a few light toys," Floyd once jokingly wrote in an Instagram caption.   


Forbes has recently named him the highest-paid athlete of the decade. His 50 match unbeaten streak and other endorsements have reportedly gathered him over $900 million over the last 10 years.  His run for the money began in 2006 when he broke free from promoter Top Rank via an opt-out clause in his contract that cost him $750,000 to execute, Forbes wrote. Mayweather resides in a 22,000-square-foot (2,000 m2), five-bedroom, seven-bath, custom-built mansion in Las Vegas, Nevada. He also owns a boxing gym called the "Mayweather Boxing Club" located in the Chinatown Plaza in Las Vegas.
