Before and after the flamboyant Floyd Mayweather Jr. trains to defend his undefeated boxing streak against Miguel Cotto, he recuperates and relaxes in his $9 million hideout mansion in the middle of the Las Vegas desert.

Mayweather, who fights Cotto on Saturday, May 5, 2012, in a World Boxing Association super welterweight title fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, relaxes in his spare time in a 22,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bath custom-built home on a golf course created with most every luxury imaginable —plus a few more. The ceilings, more than 24 feet high, drip with crystal chandeliers and the  walls are covered in materials like red silk and textured glass. The movie theater is two-stories high and touch-screen video games are affixed to the kitchen counter.

Let’s take a look at “Money Mayweather’s” mammoth mansion.
