The car owner adds that Mayweather really wants the car.

“This is a car Floyd has been highly interested in and psyched about getting,” Okeke said.

His love for boxing is also the same as his love for cars.

According to Chris Woodyard of USA Today, Floyd has more than 100 cars in his possession based on an auto dealer’s claim. Mayweather frequently transacts with this dealer whenever he orders a car. The auto dealer is named Josh “Chop” Towbin of Towbin Motorcars based in Las Vegas.

Chop shared his thoughts about Mayweather’s desire in cars.

“He’ll buy a car before a fight, he’ll buy cars after the fight and he’ll buy cars on holidays,” Towbin said.

It is easy to understand why Mayweather ordered the car based on this YouTube video.
