Floyd Mayweather is the proud owner of a mansion in Miami Beach, after throwing down serious coin last week.

The boxing star nicknamed “Money” spent just around $18 million for the nine bedroom, 10 bathroom Palm Island spread, The Real Deal first reported.

Among the many perks at the retired 44 year old’s 10,853-square-footer are a movie theater, gym (natch), dock and pool. It was most recently listed for $19.9 million.

Dina Goldentayer of Douglas Elliman represented the sellers; Tanasha Pettigrew of Galleria International represented the veteran fighter, who must be feeling pretty flush these days.

Over the summer, Mayweather reportedly raked in at least $10 million just for showing up (and possibly much more) to his exhibition bout with YouTube star Logan Paul at Hard Rock Stadium. The event ended without a victor, though Mayweather was rewarded handsomely for his appearance.

“I believe in working smarter, not harder. So if it’s something easy, like a legalized bank robbery, I gotta do it, I have to do it,” Mayweather said during Showtime’s pre-PPV show “Inside Mayweather vs. Paul.” The exact amount of the end paycheck is still unclear, but apparently contained enough cash for him to afford Miami Beach waterfront real estate.

The Michigan native, who also owns homes in Las Vegas and California, seems to be a fan of South Florida.

In 2016, the flamboyant promoter plunked down $7.7 million — in cash — for a newly built waterfront house on Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach. Last year, he unloaded it for $6.3 million. Seems he got a better deal in this round.
