Floyd Mayweather has a nickname anybody knows him for. That nickname happens to be “Money” and it seems like everyone is coming for it, including the IRS.

After two years, Mayweather is returning to fight on August 26 in a one-of-a-kind boxing match against UFC’s Conor McGregor. He is looking for one big payday because Uncle Sam is looking for Mayweather to pay a 2015 tax liability which he has not paid yet.

According to reports, he is now asking for reprieve until he gets paid from his bout with Mayweather and also asking the government to waive a penalty for failure to pay.

Law360 claims “although the taxpayer has substantial assets, those assets are restricted and primarily illiquid. The taxpayer has a significant liquidity event scheduled in about 60 days from which he intends to pay the balance of the 2015 tax liability due and outstanding.”

Preparing for the fight, McGregor decided to use this brand new news to fuel some heat before the big fight to TMZ.

“That’s gotta sting,” McGregor said … “He shoulda paid his taxes and stayed retired and kept my name out of his mouth!”

Mayweather went on Instagram to give his side of the story with some receipts. Literally.

 

Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear, especially when it comes to media in this country. While everyone is counting my money and assuming the worst, these are the facts… Uncle Sam, received $26,000,000.00 from me in 2015! What else could they possibly want? I’m sure I would have been notified much sooner if there were any real discrepancies right? Bottom line, everybody just wants to be a part of the “Money May” show, including the IRS! That’s fine, you can crunch numbers all day but in the end, my empire is rock solid and intact! Now Calculate That! #TMT #FloydMayweather #TBE #Mayweather
