Peak Money: Floyd Mayweather relaxes on Victoria Peak during whistle-stop tour of Hong Kong
American former champion is pictured taking in the city’s stunning skyline during a brief stopover
He’s sauntered like royalty around Beijing’s Forbidden City and adopted a panda and named him “TMT Floyd Mayweather” in Chengdu. Now, on his quick-fire, multimillion-dollar “vacation” in China, Floyd Mayweather Jnr has added lazing on Victoria Peak to the list of activities he and his 23-person entourage took in during their week-long Asian jaunt.
The former undefeated world champion boxer was snapped taking in the city’s stunning skyline from arguably its greatest vantage point at the viewing area atop Victoria Peak on Sunday, before posting a shot of himself lazing on a pavilion before Hong Kong Island’s neon harbourfront backdrop.

The photo from The Peak was “liked” almost half-a-million times on the 40-year-old’s popular Instagram account, making it the most popular snap of his trip so far.
On Sunday, the Las Vegas-native moved on to China’s own gambling mecca, Macau, before concluding his visit in Shanghai on Monday.
In a previous Instagram post, the boxing hall-of-famer claimed he was being paid US$3 million for the trip, although he didn’t make clear who was actually footing that bill.
Here in Beijing, China at “The Great Wall Of China”, considered to be one of the greatest Wonders of The World! It’s always been on my list of places to see throughout my travels in life however, timing is everything. Coming here with 23 people has been a great experience and it doesn’t hurt to get paid $3,000,000. to simply visit and vacation here in luxury for a few days. With money this long, everything is different. I move different, I dress different and I live different because my money is extremely different! i want to thank my cousin @dejuanblake and his @affiliationmanagement company for putting this all together. 「金錢團隊」 Photo credit: @lapistolpete @idriserba videographer: @jamesdayap

The itinerary for Mayweather’s Asia trip is only known to a few and the media were not invited to any of his activities in Hong Kong.
While in Beijing, Mayweather said that he had no plans of returning to the ring and that rumours of him making a comeback were “simply untrue”.
“I’m happily retired. I’m not fighting no more, no matter what the price is,” he said.
