But TMZ have reported that Mayweather, who is already the richest athlete in the world according to Forbes , has already started spending some of the money.

Speaking to the boxer’s car deal – simply known as Chop, owner of Towbin Auto Group in Las Vegas – the boxer spent $1m (£700,000) on nine new sets of wheels.

With all of the cars being produced this year, the include five made by American muscle-car company Dodge.

Three are Challengers, which are powered by 6.4L V8s, two four-door saloon Chargers and a cross-country Journey.

The new Rolls Royce is the 29th in Mayweather’s collection, having bought 157 cars from the Las Vegas dealer.

His collection – which is split into white cars in Los Angeles and black cars in Las Vegas – include £3m worth of the British car manufacturer’s vehicles and Bugatti Veyrons which come at £1.7m each.

The cars at his home off the strip in Nevada form part of his mansion which also features a “Scarface room”.

And Mayweather may use one of his new sets of wheels to celebrate or consolidate his fight against Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium, Miami.
