Floyd Mayweather left boxing in 2017. The expugile knew how to be the highest paid athlete in the world. The Michigan- born became king of Pay Per View and thereby increased the balance of his bank accounts to sidereal figures.
At 43, Floyd is still a money-making machine. Recently, the former world champion in five categories started a new business that will bring him income that is not within the reach of the rest of the mortals .
Money created a profile on Cameo , the platform that allows different celebrities to order videos and messages based on a fee related to the prestige and fame of the character in question.
“With my partners at Stardam Images and Cameo , you can have me personalize the messages. I am the most expensive celebrity in Cameo and the first celebrity to trade with Stardam Images . There is only one thing left to do. You know what to do… ”, says Floyd in the video with which he opened his account.

According to the TMZ site, Mayweather set out to be the first Cameo figure to raise $ 1 million. The clips on the deck do not last more than a minute. With one or two hours per day it will be enough to reach the figure.
As he announced, it is the most expensive rate on the platform. Anyone who wants to entertain a loved one with a message from Floyd must pay $ 999. It is possible to distinguish in Cameo there are many characters whose fame is far from that of the former boxer. These rates range from $ 5 to $ 20. An abysmal difference with the star of the ring.
How does the system work? Users can ‘order’ a message. In addition to celebrity, they must designate a recipient. They will also have to clarify the type of celebration to which the message will be sent: birthday, marriage or other. Once the payment has been made, the platform takes a week to send the file to the user’s email box. A round business.
Mike Tyson is another celebrity who appears on the Cameo list . It has a fee of $ 500. The former heavyweight champion has already recorded several messages. It has a 4.9-star rating (out of a total of 5).
In addition to the Brooklyn-born there are former footballers Michael Salgado ($ 100), Michael Essien (100), Roberto Carlos (200), former NBA figures such as Isaiah Thomas (245), Gary Paton (625) and Dennis Rodman (750 ).
