Uber wealthy boxer Floyd Mayweather may be retiring to a six-bedroom home in Beverly Hills. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the fighter paid $26 million (just a fraction of the $100 million he earned for his latest bout) for a nearly 16,000-square-foot mansion near the Beverly Hills Hotel.
The purchase comes fresh off his 50th victory in the ring (and his unsavory but unsurprising comments in defense of “locker room talk.”)
Built in the ’90s, the home received a recent overhaul overseen by megamansion developer Nile Niami. Features of the residence include hardwood and marble floors, French doors, multiple fireplaces, built-in shelving, and an elaborate winding staircase leading to the second level.
In addition to the six bedrooms, the very well-equipped property includes an enormous kitchen, a separate cocktail bar and wine cellar, a master bedroom with its own balcony and en-suite bathroom, a gym, and a guest house with a home theater that seats 20 and has a built-in concession stand.
The home sits on a half-acre lot with a grassy backyard and a large swimming pool and spa.
Even with all those amenities, though, it’s a bit low-key for Niami, who in February listed a $100 million Beverly Hills spec house (and released this very sexual video to promote it). The home was initially advertised with a pair of luxury cars and an art collection worth millions of dollars. But as THR reports, the price has since dropped to $85 million, with the cars and art no longer included in the sale price.
