He's known for his love of money and boxing star Floyd Mayweather has been at it again as he splashed the cash on a trip to Paris.

The American superstar regularly posts pictures to social media demonstrating his fabulous wealth but his latest purchase in the French capital may well have topped the lot.

Mayweather, who has been linked with a rematch with Manny Pacquiao, headed to the city of love with his daughter Iyanna and his latest Instagram video shows the eye-watering amount of cash he's splashed out.

The 39-year-old spent a remarkable total of US$400,000 (NZ$582,000) on bags from designer label Hermes.

He posted a video of him doing exactly that with the caption: 'Went bag shopping at Hermes in Paris, France today. I treated myself to one size 55 Hermes Hac crocodile men travel bag and 3 size 50 Hermes Hac crocodile men travel bags and bought @melissiarene a 40 orange crocodile Birkin.

"Over $400,000 spent in Hermes cause I stay in my lane."

The expensive shopping trip at one of Paris' most expensive stores followed a trip to one of the city's most famous landscapes, The Louvre.

It all formed part of Mayweather's recent globetrotting expedition which has seen him enjoy his time away from the ring.

But if reports over a potential rematch with Pacquiao are to be believed, Mayweather may well be returning to the ring in the near future.

The man who calls himself 'Money' Mayweather has previously indicated he has no desire to return to competitive boxing but the pull of a fight with Pacquiao of the Philippines and its potential mega earnings may well be too hard to turn down.

Unbeaten in 49 professional fights, Mayweather may also find he'd like one more success to bring up a half century of wins before retiring for good.
