Floyd Mayweather Jr. received a $40 million check for Alvarez bout

Floyd Mayweather mocks Oscar De La Hoya over Instagram

Shantel Jackson was ringside for the Floyd Mayweather fight

Shantel Jackson and Floyd Mayweather Jr. may no longer be engaged, but they still are close enough to the point that Miss Jackson attended her (ex?) boo’s big bout with Canelo Alvarez last weekend.
