Floyd Mayweather trains clutching hundreds of thousands of dollars

Floyd Mayweather is certainly used to people disliking him. You might say he fosters that sentiment deliberately, and even embraces it. That would certainly explain this latest Instagram video, which has the ostentatiously wealthy boxer training with a six-inch stack of hundred dollar bills clutched to his chest.

Grabbing the chunk of change from one of his many onlookers, Mayweather can be heard to say, "I need motivation. Let me hold it while I"m training."

After the announcement of Mayweather's September 12th bout with the woefully overmatched Andre Berto, some might say that money is now "Money's" only motivation. And if that video wasn't enough to remind you of your own humble pockets, go ahead and enjoy this still from Floyd's Instagram.
