Money : The Life and Fast Times of Floyd Mayweather Hardback
by Tris Dixon
This edition is fully updated to include Mayweather's battle with UFC star Conor McGregor. Floyd `Money' Mayweather is one of the most successful professional boxers of all time, with fifty professional victories 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 expose of one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen.
