Floyd "Money" Mayweather Celebrates Beating Canelo Alvarez's Ass at KOD and Story Miami
"What more can I say? We did it again."
That's what Floyd "Money" Mayweather tweeted after slapping Saul "Canelo" Alvarez 'round all night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Yeah, yeah, yeah ... It ended up being a split decision. But let's all just agree that judge C.J. Ross' draw score was bogus. Even boxing legend, trainer, and commentator Teddy Atlas suggested Ms. Ross was paid off by gamblers.
Bad night or bribe, though, as Floyd blurted out in the ring: "What the fuck?!" Shit was a clinic. And that's why Money is currently vacationing in Miami, celebrating beating Canelo's ass.

On Monday night, Floyd broke out the bricks of $100 bills at King of Diamonds for a special "Undefeated Champion" edition of the club's infamous weekly stripper fights. And as KOD tweeted, "Lil Kim [was] in the building." (But didn't throw knuckle.) And it was a "movie."
No official stats about the number of dolla bills dropped and tossed on big-booty brawlers. But the guy's nickname is "Money." He's grossed over $350 million in his career, according to Forbes. And he made an extra $40,870,000 (after anti-doping tests and tickets) for just stepping into the ring with Canelo.
So yeah ... As usual, Floyd wasn't workin' with a budget.
But Money ain't done. He's already headed back to the club.
The self-described TBE, i.e. The Best Ever, just Instagrammed that he and "TMT [The Money Team] will be at @STORYsobe in Miami this Thursday. Come by if you're in town and party with us."
Mayweather was so pleased with his ass-beating performance that he got a painting done.
Of course, we here at Crossfade hit up Story's reps for the lowdown. And they say, "The night will be really special with Floyd. It's a night of Champions with Stevie J and special Hennessy cocktails."
Oh, and perhaps Floyd's newest rap BFF, Lil Wayne, will show up?
Proud to be a part of the legacy of one of the greatest athletes that ever lived. & that's the legacy of the great Floyd "$" Mayweather TMT!

Or how 'bout the Biebz?
After all, Money's hired the tween-heartthrob-gone-bad as his ring hypeman for two bouts in a row. And like he gushed to Billboard: "When you're the best, you only want to surround yourself with the best. And [Bieber] is an exceptional artist. I mean, he's the future."
Or, ummm ... Miley Cyrus?
"Yeah," Floyd admitted to Howard Stern the other day, "she be twerkin'."
But even if Weezy, JB, or America's Worst Twerker aren't on the secret guest list ... You'll still get to "celebrate," as Story tweets, "with the Champ." Or, you know, watch him have fun spending a milli in the VIP section.
