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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
