Jeweler: Famous Boxer Owes Me $1.4M

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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
