PHOTOS: Mayweather’s $100k painting to honour his victories

By on

The two fought a hugely anticipated bout in 2007

It’s Mayweather, again.

The American (47-0, 26 KOs) is primed for what has been widely called the richest fight in boxing history against fellow superstar Manny Pacquiao. But in the meantime, the Money Team are winning on headlines.

According to pop culture website, TMZ, Mayweather has commissioned a $100,000 dollar painting to honour several of his greatest victories with the place of honour at the centre going to Oscar de la Hoya.

Floyd, then 30, beat the then ‘unbeatable’ Oscar, in a sensational 2007 bout.

And with his own May 2 gig with Manny looming, Mayweather has asked the famous charcoal painter Dave Hobrecht to work on the seven fights he is most proud of – with Oscar on top of the list.

To boost the Hobrecht’s morale, Mayweather has even added authentic training equipment to help the painter get it right.


You have to admire the man’s news-making skills. He’s good – very good.
