Jeweler: Famous Boxer Owes Me $1.4M

Published

on

He was the world’s highest-paid athlete last year.

A jeweler in Las Vegas says former professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. purchased a necklace for $3 million — and didn’t finish paying for it.

The Jewelers Inc. filed a lawsuit claiming that it’s still owed $1.4 million for the piece, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The company says Mayweather initially paid $1 million and then made several payments of $100,000 each for the piece, which has 72 diamonds.

But after that, Mayweather wouldn’t pay the rest, The Jewelers Inc. claims in the lawsuit.

Mayweather wouldn’t comment on the litigation, which was filed in Clark County District Court, the newspaper reports.

In 2015, Forbes ranked Mayweather as the world’s highest-paid athlete, with earnings of $300 million that year.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
