Mayweather lavishes over N129m on Rolls Royce upgrade

The upgrade included the addition of mink rugs and a 45-inch TV in the back.

TMZ reports that the legendary boxer tapped his go-to car guy Obi Okeke, aka. Doctor Bugatti, to step up the RR he purchased a few years ago.

The report adds that the Rolls Royce was already out of stock and stretched almost 10 feet as at the time Mayweather initially bought the vehicle.

Mayweather has now had Obi turn his luxury car into a "Netflix & Chill on wheels" literally, with the reported new features inclusive of a 2000-watt sound system and a 45" TV complete with Wi-Fi, in the back.

He also added a new engine, custom "TMT"(The Money Team) wood interior, and mink floor mats that cost N31.6 million($44,000), summing up to a N129million ($180,000) refurbish.

This wouldn’t be the first time, Mayweather has tapped Obi’s services to upgrade his expensive automobiles.

Doctor Buggatti has previously installed a N129 million ($18,000) mink fur-lined baby car seat to his (other) N254.8 million ($345k+) Rolls Royce for his grandson, Kentrell Jr. in July 2022.

This comes just weeks after the Money Man lavished a million dollars on a white gold chain made of 8,500 diamonds.

The legendary boxer who doesn’t know what it means to lose has made most of his large fortune as pro fighter, and is now doing exhibition fights across the world, with those fights also earning him millions of dollars.
