Floyd Mayweather said he will wear a mouthguard embedded with diamonds, gold and $100 bills for his fight with Manny Pacquiao next month.

The piece costs £16,800 and is designed by Dr Lee Gause, a New York dentist who often flies to Las Vegas to fit the American’s mouthguard before fights.

Dr Gause inserts a portion of the $100 note into the plastic.

Mayweather, who will clash with Pacquiao on May 2, also has a female chef who is being paid £670 for each meal she prepares during his training camp.
