Retired American boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jnr., is regarded as one of the best boxers to ever be in the four-squared ring.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Mayweather has an unblemished professional record (50-0) and no man has defeated him after turning pro.
Before Mayweather became a professional boxer he was an amateur and he had participated in many tournaments.
The American is been praised for having a clean professional record but there was one man who defeated him before he turned pro.
This man's name is Serafim Todorov and he is a Bulgarian.
The victory by Todorov, then 27, over Mayweather, then 19, in the featherweight semifinals of the 1996 Olympic boxing tournament was the last time Mayweather lost in the ring.
A few months later, Mayweather turned professional and began a career that has earned him a lot of dollars.
Mayweather is now the richest athlete while Todorov is struggling to make it in life.
In a 2015 report by New York Times, Todorov who resides in Parardzhik lives across the street from a burned-out coffee hut with a giant banana painted on its back wall.

Around the bend, leaning in the tall grass is a corroded shed holding ancient farming equipment. Often a horse trots down the craggy road, pulling a splintered cart and a rider toward the center of one of this country’s poorest towns.
With the aforementioned description, it clearly depicts the kind of lifestyle Todorov is living in.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported a story of Mayweather's powerful mansion.
He caused a stir with the display of his amazing riches as he displayed his luxurious home.
The showcased house has 11 bedrooms, 14 bath homes on 21,861 square feet with several guest houses, both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a large courtyard and a 20-car underground garage.
