Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather has received backlash from internet users who described him as wasteful. This comes shortly after he revealed that he bought a gold Rolex watch for his infant grandson Kentrell.

Pro boxer Floyd Mayweather recently purchased a gold Rolex watch for his newborn grandson, Kentrell. Given his track record of buying expensive gifts for his kids in the past, this came as no surprise.

However, while this might have seemed like a typical loving grandfather gesture, Mayweather soon came under attack from internet users who had contrary opinions.

Taking to the comments section of a post shared by TheShadeRoom on Instagram, one user described Mayweather's gesture as stupid while another said it was an ignorant move.

A disapproving fan also noted that considering how heavy the wristwatch is, the toddler would end up hurting himself. A fourth Instagram user wrote:

"That's just wasteful."

In an adorable picture, the baby was captured wearing a small diamond-encrusted Rolex watch with Mayweather holding up the jewelry's face as it glistened.

Little Kentrell was born to Mayweather's daughter Yaya and her rapper boyfriend Youngboy NBA in January. True to his family's history with luxury life, the newborn already has his share of expensive gifts.

Despite having different mothers, Mayweather has given his kids the best life.

Apart from his collection of expensive cars, Mayweather is also a proud owner of several luxury wristwatches, with one of them estimated to be worth over $18 million.

Speaking about his love for watches, the legendary boxer reportedly once admitted that he travels around the world with a briefcase filled with wristwatches so he can change them at will.

In addition to Yaya, Mayweather is also a proud father to three other kids, all of whom are a testament to the boxer's love for a luxurious life.

Mayweather welcomed his first son, Koran, with ex-girlfriend Josie Harris in January 2000. The former couple also shares 20-year-old son Zion and their 16-year-old daughter Jirah.

Kentrell's mom, Iyanna, was born in May 2000 during the boxer's romance with Melissa Brim. Despite having different mothers, Mayweather has given his kids the best life.

Whether it is buying expensive cars or throwing lavish birthday parties for them, Mayweather knows how to put a smile on his children's faces.

And while fans might disapprove of his regular purchase of expensive gifts for them, it is undeniable that Mayweather is an amazing father. Even more? It appears he will be an even better grandfather to little Kentrell.
