“His brain is on another level, his mind thinks outside the box, he wants to be practical and he has a certain idea,” said James McNair, referring to the expugile.
James McNair, partner and friend of former world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, revealed this Thursday in an interview with The Sun the secret of how they make millions of dollars after the withdrawal of the American fighter and commented on some plans for the future.
‘Money’ is not only known for being one of the most iconic boxers in history, who ended his sports career with a record of 50 wins and 0 losses, but also for being a successful businessman. In 2019, he topped the list of the highest paid athletes of the last decade, after earning $ 915 million in 10 years.
“His mind is always working “
McNair explained that it is Mayweather who is in charge of making decisions in his big business, which includes the brand The Money Team (TMT), the Girl Collection strip club, the real estate and the music label TMT, with which they have already signed the rappers Lil Jamez and Friyie. “This is all the work of Floyd and his ideas,” he said, underlining that the former boxer’s ideas are present “from the design of nightclubs and skating rinks, to the buildings.” “Your brain is on another level, your mind thinks outside the box, you want to be practical and have a certain idea“he added.
In addition, he said that ‘Money’ is always thinking about business. “We can be playing basketball and he sees a certain pair of shorts and he will say, ‘We can take these pants and do this and style it like that.’ “Your mind is always working and I think that’s why he is so successful and, as I said, it comes from within, “he added.” He is a boss with hands, so he always wants to be there to know that the work is done well, even if he has someone there. He has to supervise him because he is a perfectionist and you obviously see that in the ring, “he said.
McNair revealed that the former is also passionate about fashion and design, so they are planning to work on “a line where there will be high-end clothing.” “He’s passionate about certain things, like fashion and design, so once that’s already inside you, it doesn’t matter how successful you are financially, or how big you are as a celebrity, he has a passion for certain things and that will always be in him“, he pointed.
Although Mayweather officially retired in 2017, after beating former UFC champion Conor McGregor in 10 rounds in a bout, considered one of the best-selling events in pay-per-view history ($ 4.6 million), he returned to an exhibition match in 2018 against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, which McNair negotiated.
Recently, McNair has participated in negotiations for Mayweather faces the ‘youtuber’ Logan Paul at a pay-per-view exhibition, which was initially set for February 20, but has since been delayed, with a new date yet to be confirmed. “We are going to make an announcement soon,” said the businessman, without giving a specific date. “We are excited, Logan has a huge following and in the next two weeks we should know something.”
