YouTube star Coffeezilla has accused undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather of “cheating” people through NFTs and covering up the evidence.
NFTs have divided the internet. Some people are excited about the new possibilities of its promise, while others aren’t so excited.
Celebrities, content creators and influencers looking to cash in on their names have joined tokens and the like, both consciously and unconsciously of the potential scams that can take place. Some of these public figures have made thousands and even millions of dollars promoting NFTs.
One celebrity touting her is undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather. He’s been part of the NFT craze since the blockchain fad emerged at the forefront of the American mainstream. He was so involved in the movement that he even created an NFT in his likeness called “FloydNFT”. The champion was reportedly paid $4,907,407 for a 2021 promotion.
What will happen to Mayweather’s NFTs?
Mayweather has allegedly cleaned the internet of all videos showing him promoting NFTs and NFT giveaways – even as he starts promoting his latest project, The Mayweverse.
And because of this, YouTuber Coffeezilla accused Mayweather of “cheating” his fans. He’s known for shaming YouTubers, and what he alleges is their “fraudulent” behavior in the NFT space. He targeted Mayweather and took to Twitter to express his grievances.
Coffeezilla Calls Mayweather About Deleting Posts Promoting NFTs
The YouTuber let people know that Mayweather’s latest, as he calls it, “scam” had raised over $4,000,000 when he tweeted one of his tweets. He noted that Floyd had since deleted the previously cited tweet.
But in a sort of plot twist, he revealed his trump card, tweeting, “Too bad I archived it.”

Coffeezilla provided insight into the numerous NFTs Floyd had promoted and then seemingly deleted, going through the tokens and other projects the boxer had attached his name to.
Then Coffee went a step further, even including comments from investors who were furious at how quickly he dropped his previous Floyd NFTs and was already working on a new one.
The YouTuber has yet to upload a video accusing Mayweather of cheating, so this likely won’t be the last we hear of this story.
