Product Description

Details

Floyd ‘Money' Mayweather is one of the most successful professional boxers of all time. In September 2015 he defeated Andre Berto

at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to claim his forty-ninth professional victory in a glittering unbeaten ring career that has

spanned two decades. Mayweather was born into a boxing family that was barely surviving on the poverty line. His father had enjoyed

a modestly successful career in the ring but had to make ends meet on the street. When a rival drug dealer arrived at the house and

threatened to shoot him, Floyd Mayweather Sr picked up his son and used him as a human shield. Such were the ashes from which Floyd

was to rise.

This is the remarkable story of Floyd Mayweather's ascent from these bleak origins to become the highest-paid sportsman on the planet.

It is a story of greed, arrogance, abuse, extraordinary boxing ability and unrivalled ambition. In Money, Tris Dixon explores it all in a searing,

insightful and often brutal exposé of one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen. This new edition will be fully updated to include

Mayweather's fight with UFC star Conor McGregor as he aims to claim an historic 50-0 fight record that will take him past heavyweight

legend Rocky Marciano's record.
