It may still be the best part of two months away, but Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been Christmas shopping.

The undefeated boxer has splashed out on a 2014 Rolls Royce Wraith—and perhaps not really understanding how Christmas works, has bought the present not only several weeks too early, but for himself.

Still, it's a hell of a set of wheels. According to Car And Driver, the car retails for around $300k.

Mayweather, who posted a picture of the car on Instagram, added:

2014 Rolls Royce Wraith. I bought myself an early Christmas gift. If you work you hard, you can play hard. That's what WINNERS do.

Given the cheque Mayweather picked up for fighting Saul Alvarez in September exceeded $40m, it's not as if he can't afford it.
