Reports: Mayweather Also Owes IRS $7.2 Million For 2010

As BoxingScene.com reported a few days ago, the IRS claims five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. still owes $22.2 million in taxes from 2015, the year he earned his biggest payday with the blockbuster fight against Manny Pacquiao.

A notice of a federal tax lien filed against the undefeated fighter nicknamed "Money" shows the balance as unpaid as of March 6. The document was filed with county officials in Las Vegas in April.

Mayweather's tax troubles come as he gets ready to come out of retirement to fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Now there are reports stating that the IRS filed a lien for $7.2 million for the tax year of 2010, according to records that show the lien in question as being unresolved. 2010 was the year Mayweather fought and defeated Shane Mosley on Cinco De Mayo weekend at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Regarding the debt for 2015, Mayweather filed a petition last week arguing that as wealthy as he is, he doesn't have the cash on hand to pay his debt. The IRS refused a direct request by the fighter to pay in installments until he is paid for the fight with McGregor, and the agency said it intends to levy Mayweather.

It's the latest in a cycle for Mayweather, who paid $15.5 million in taxes for 2001, 2003-2007 and 2009 only after the IRS filed liens against him, according to documents filed to the Clark County Recorder in Las Vegas.

Mayweather's tax attorney did not return messages seeking comment. Mayweather's manager, Leonard Ellerbe, referred questions to the attorney.

Mayweather has publicly disputed the claims being made by the IRS. He went to social media, stating that he paid the IRS $26 million in 2015, and that he's sure he would have been notified much sooner had there been any "real discrepancies."

Mayweather said: "My empire is rock solid and intact."
