Toss in a few bad investments, a posse of 100 or so, and the massive decline in boxing interest. Money can go quick.... especially when you go from 50 mil a year to scrapping for promotional money.
Boxing may be in a general decline but Mayweather does the biggest buyrate of the year out of Boxing, MMA, and pro wrestling.

Him and Pacquiao will probably regret never fighting each other though.
