Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. has paid $18 million for a brilliant Jacob & Co wristwatch. And, yes, it’s a knockout.

The former professional boxer posted a photo on Instagram of his new jewelry purchase. The piece is known as “The Billionaire Watch,” and one look will tell you why. The watch is literally studded with diamonds. Mayweather purchased it from his favorite jeweler, Tadashi Fukushima.

The timepiece includes 260 carats of emerald-cut diamonds of the highest quality, in addition to other specially cut diamonds. This luxurious creation is just one of a number of high-end accessories in Mayweather’s extensive personal collection of dazzlers. The 2018 World’s Highest Paid Athlete (according to Forbes) also collects Hermes Birkin bags and luxury supercars.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. lives up to his nickname once again with this unique purchase. The boxing champion reportedly earned over $300 million from his final fight against Conor McGregor before retiring with a perfect 50-0 record.
