Ever wanted to see what a multimillion dollar check looks like? Thanks to Twitter user “Fight_Ghost” we can see what Floyd Mayweather’s $40,870,000 million dollar check from his fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight looks like.
Mayweather defeated Canelo by a majority decision last Saturday to extend his undefeated record to 45-0.

It includes deductions for tickets and anti-doping. I think it is crazy that Floyd Mayweather Jr. essentially paid $605,000 for tickets for his entourage and friends. I’m also concerned about the hand writing. It seems kind of sloppy for a large check, I guess in my head I kind of imagined it being like a standard pay check, printed out by a computer not done by hand.
Nevertheless I’m not complaining. If someone wanted to write me a check that big it could be on special Barbie themed checks for all I care.
