The cheque was dated May 2, 2015 – the date he beat rival, Manny Pacquiao, on points in the most lucrative bout in boxing history.

Alongside the picture, Mayweather wrote: “Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man’s legacy instead of trying to write their own. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh.

“This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of. Y’all still have to work however, I’m happily retired.

“At the end of the day, it’s them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the jokes on you.

“I’ve made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn’t read, write, or count.

“Y’all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y’all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y’all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y’all charter jets and we own jets.”

Earlier in November, Mayweather ruled out the prospect of a big-money rematch with Pacquaio , insisting he doesn’t need the money.
