When little Floyd Mayweather Jr. became Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr., it seems he lost his understanding of what currency is, and what it's meant for. Money is generally earned so that it can be spent on products and services. But burning a $100 bill is not something we see people do often.

Courtesy of TMZ, we can see Floyd Mayweather Jr. enjoying his young party life in an Atlanta nightclub by setting a $100 bill on fire with a lighter, making sure that everyone in the club, including the photographers can clearly see it.

There was, and always is, a lot of talk from Mayweather Jr. himself about how important money is to him, as he has his kids and a family to support. We have also heard of Mayweather Jr. having legal problems, which may involve him giving away a very considerable chunk of his savings. So why is Mayweather Jr. burning money in a nightclub, literally?

While he is known for lavish spending, I assume this act was meant to be a little spark, a media stunt, to get his name out there before his fight against Victor Ortiz. Some may call this self-marketing, while others simply say it was a cocky act from an arrogant man.

Whatever it was, it’s out there for everyone to see! Boys will be boys, and Floyd will always be Floyd.
