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!”
