FLOYD MAYWEATHER showed off his speed and power while training with MONEY raining down ahead of his exhibition with Logan Paul.
The boxing legend faces YouTuber Paul this year in a pay-per-view spectacle bout.
Mayweather has been levelled with criticism for the farcical mismatch, with fears his reputation will be tarnished.
But the multimillionaire hit back in his post: "They’re worried about the legacy, I'm worried about the currency!!"
In the clip, Mayweather starts of gently tapping the bag, before picking it up with heavier and quicker punches, all meanwhile money pours down.
He says: "Just light work. Just light work. Just light work. We can pick it up. Let's pick it up."
Mayweather, 44, projected he will make $100MILLION (£72m) to face Paul, opposed to the $35m (£25m) he could get to fight a regular boxer.
The American all-time great was due to face the social media star, 25, on February 20, but it was postponed with a new date yet to be announced.
Mayweather revealed he backdated the bout to ensure fans can attend, and named the Las Vegas Raiders' 80,000-seater stadium as a potential venue.
He has not fought since 2018, when he wiped out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a similar exhibition.
Mayweather retired professionally in 2017, after he beat UFC star Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.
Paul on the other hand has boxed twice, firstly in a white collar bout in Manchester against YouTube rival KSI, which ended a draw.
In the rematch a year later after both fighters had turned pro, the vlogger was beaten by split-decision as a two-point deduction cost him the result.
Mayweather, who said Paul is more famous than any boxer besides himself,recently opened up about coming out of retirement for the mega-money payday.
He told entrepreneur Rob Moore: "I prefer to still go out, entertain and have fun.
"Just because I go out and entertain, have fun, doesn't mean that I still want to fight 12 rounds.
"I think we got a six round exhibition and I think it's going to be very entertaining, and the people are going to love it.
"We've got to look at 35 million for 12 rounds or 100 million for six rounds, big difference, big difference.
"And I can't really say what the numbers are going to be. How much money I'm going to make, or how much Logan Paul is going to make.
"But we're talking about projecting, we've always got to talk about what it's projected to make."
