Floyd Mayweather counts out $1 million while aboard private jet in viral video

Floyd Mayweather was the highest-earning American athlete of the past year, collecting $85 million for a pair of victories over Victor Ortiz and Miguel Cotto.

And it looks like a two-month stint in a Las Vegas jail hasn't made the fighter nicknamed "Money" any less brazen about flaunting it.

Mayweather is shown counting out $1 million while aboard a private jet in a video posted on YouTube earlier Tuesday.

The No. 1 fighter in SI.com's pound-for-pound ratings, Mayweather was released from the Clark County Detention Center on Aug. 3 after serving two months of a three-month sentence in a misdemeanor battery case.

The 35-year-old has yet to hint at his future plans, though Mayweather will need a new license to fight in Las Vegas, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission. His previous license for the May 5 victory over Cotto was granted for one fight only.
