In a recent interview, Floyd Mayweather spoke about the CEO of private equity firm Vista Equity Partners, Robert Smith. He stated, “I talked to Robert Smith about it the other day. You know, when I texted Robert and we talked, I was like, ‘You know Robert, we both get a lot of money. I don’t have the money you have. But of course I made over a billion, but health is a real world, honestly.

Mayweather is known for his expensive possessions and lavish lifestyle, and his Instagram is proof of that. However, Smith is making the five-division boxing champion look broke with his huge net worth of $8 billion. On the other hand, the American boxer is worth 1.2 billion dollars.
