Floyd Mayweather Slammed Online after Photo of Himself in Louis Vuitton Jacket That Reportedly Costs $6,500

Retired professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather, roused an online frenzy with his $6.500 Louis Vuitton appearance at the 2020 Superbowl in Miami.

Undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather showed up at Sunday's Superbowl 2020 held in Miami, rocking a unique Louis Vuitton jacket, with sewn-in purses.

The over six thousand dollars Louis Vuitton look has stirred an online debate among fans of the 42-year-old, with most trolling him for his questionable fashion taste while referring to him as a "walking suitcase."

Intended as a fashionable and functional piece, the fashion brand lists the Monogram Admiral jacket on their official website, with a price tag of £4,850, explaining that the attire "embodies accesomorphosis, whereby accessories and garments blend into one."

The retired professional boxer took to Instagram to share a picture of himself rocking the limited edition outfit during the SuperBowl final between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. He captioned:

"#Superbowl #Superbowl2020."

The post attracted over one million likes and several comments from fans who expressed conflicting opinions about the Louis Vuitton wear, leading to an internet debate across various social media platforms.

The fighter previously went off the rings in early retirement, in a bid to preserve his health from the life-threatening sports, rather than join the list of boxers that died "inside that squared circle."

One fan tweeted a mock conversation between the 50-0 undefeated champion and a flight ticket agent, implying the jacket could suffice as a travel bag. 

Another tweet accused the icon of "looking like a whole duffel bag," while a third alleged that the boxing idol wanted "to be a suitcase so bad." A tweet by @AfriThinka likened the star to a suicide bomber.

Amid all the trolling and backlash, other fans did a counter-attack, praising the featherweight champion for his bold choice of outfit.

One fan commented on Instagram, saying, "money Mayweather the jacket is straight fire, keep giving the haters that." A second backed him with the words, "even me, I want that too." One of the comments justified the fighter's choice as it read:

"He got that money. He can wear what he wants when he wants to."

Mayweather's bold super bowl appearance comes months after the icon revealed his intention to come out of retirement in 2020.

Last November, the 42-year-old announced to his over 43 million social media followers, spurring a heist of excitement and anticipation.

The fighter previously went off the rings in early retirement, in a bid to preserve his health from the life-threatening sport, rather than join the list of boxers that died "inside that squared circle."

With his expected heroic comeback, which the world still awaits, fashion choices would soon become an unlikely subject of discussion when referring to the ring legend.
