So it should come as no surprise that the Money Man would want to do everything he can to make sure the Las Vegas bout lives long in his memory.
It is perhaps a little surprising, however, that he would choose to do that by commissioning an eight-foot tall portrait of McGregor to be hung on the wall of his new Beverly Hills home.

But that’s exactly what he’s done, with Mayweather showing off the artwork on Instagram with the caption ‘exclusive timeless artwork in my Beverly Hills home’, having commissioned it prior to the fight.
The stunning piece is the work of Tiffanie Anderson, also known as ‘The Pretty Artist’, a former pop star who put together the 12-foot wide canvas using broken glass. She’s no stranger to capturing Mayweather’s big moments, having previously produced portraits of the five-weight world champion’s victory over Manny Pacquiao and posed with Mayweather alongside another portrait.
Anderson also posted the image of Mayweather alongside her work, with the caption: ‘Money Mayweather with my pieces in his new home!’
The portrait of McGregor is paired with a matching one of Mayweather, with the two split either side of a doorway, showing the Irishman standing in front of the tricolour ahead of the contest and the American flexing his muscles in a pose similar to the one pulled on the scales.

Mayweather, a seasoned world champion in multiple weight classes, stopped McGregor in the 10th round of what was his first professional boxing contest, ended months of hostility between the two with victory at T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip.
The 40-year-old bought £18.9m mansion in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles after the bout in August, which reportedly earned him £250m, and in true Mayweather style has been showing off the features on social media.
The 15,096 square-foot property features six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms a state-of-the-art home cinema ‘that comfortably seats 50 people’ as well as a vast wine collection and its very own sweet shop.
In addition to the cost of the property, Mayweather has reportedly spent $500,000 (£369,000) on furnishings for the California mansion, which sits next to the famous Beverly Hills hotel.
