NEW YORK CITY - The sports world is one area of the American sector that has never been affected by the weakened economy.
And nowhere is that more in evidence than in the upcoming September 14, boxing match between the champion Floyd Mayweather and the challenger Carmelo Alvarez.
Buckaroo Yazoo with The Turnstile Review is reporting that Mayweather will receive an unbelievable paycheck of $41.5 million win or lose.
The Milwaukee boxer's record stands at a flawless 44-0 and he and his boxing camp have no doubt that after the fight he will be 45-0.
The 36-year-old Mayweather was asked what he is going to do with so much money. He grinned as he downed three bottles of Lemon Gatorade and replied that he may just end up buying some country somewhere.
He laughed as he said that he has always wanted to be a president of a country and if he buys one he will certainly achieve that goal.
Mayweather was told by Buckaroo Kazoo that he heard that the African country of Dutch West Wakaboonka may be on the market by the end of the year.
His eyes lit up and he hollered out to his manager to get the number to Dutch West Wakaboonka and give them a call.
