Floyd Mayweather Jr. enters real estate ring with penthouse listing

Floyd Mayweather Jr. seeks $2.6 million purse for Miami-area penthouse

Boxing’s biggest ticket, Floyd Mayweather Jr., is taking his act to a new ring: real estate. The champion prize fighter has listed his Miami-area condominium for sale at $2.599 million.

The penthouse unit in the St. Tropez Condominiums high-rise in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., weighs in with four bedrooms, four bathrooms and just over 3,000 square feet of living space.

Lined in floor-to-ceiling glass and modern appointments, the penthouse offers unobstructed views of the water. Among its features are a streamlined gourmet kitchen, living room with a wet bar, a private “cabana” patio and a master suite with a large walk-in closet and soaking tub.

Amenities at the St. Tropez include a swimming pool and Jacuzzi, a fitness center and 24-hour security.

Listing agent Tanasha Pettigrew of Galleria International Realty says Mayweather “wants to leave condo life for a house” now that his children are getting older.

Pettigrew noted that Mayweather’s unit was being offered “turn-key,” meaning the luxury appointments and furnishings are included in the asking price.

Mayweather, 37, has maintained his status as boxing’s premier draw, banking $105 million in earnings in 2014, according to Forbes.

Records show that Mayweather purchased the penthouse unit in 2010 for $1.5 million, according to public records. The boxer also maintains a number of residences in the Las Vegas area. Gossip Extra first reported the listing.
