Floyd Mayweather shows off a pet tiger on his Instagram account

Friday December 4th, 2015

When you have been flaunting your wealth on social media for as long as Floyd Mayweather has, you begin to run out of luxury goods to floss and creative ways to stack large amounts of money. To solve this dilemma, it appears Mayweather has acquired a baby tiger as a pet.

The undefeated boxer says the tiger was a gift from his Russian associates in The Money Team on a visit to Moscow.

One can only imagine the mountain of paperwork involved in transporting an endangered species from Russia to the United States as a pet.

If Mayweather does successfully keep the jungle cat as his new pal, he is looking for help finding a name for the two-month old female Indian Tiger cub.
