Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a very rich man, in case you weren’t aware.

Mayweather posted a photo to his Instagram last night boasting about how much money he made for his fight last weekend versus Marcos Maidana.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

It’s quite a bit, to put it lightly.

Mayweather posted a caption underneath the picture saying “$32,000,000.00 for 36 minutes. I’m waiting for the PPV numbers to come in so I can make another $38,000,000.00 on the back-end… making it a grand total of $70,000,000.00.”

Must be nice.

Of course, if Mayweather made this much money fighting Maidana, you’ve got to wonder how much money he and a certain Filipino boxer could make in a fight together.

The greatest boxer of all time is among the masses of fans who want to see a Mayweather-Pacquiao bout.

Muhammad Ali sent out a tweet following Mayweather’s victory saying “Congratulations @FloydMayweather. Maybe after you rest up we can see you rumble with @MannyPacquiao! #AliTweet.”
