TMZ reported last week that Floyd Mayweather signed the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight contract in usual Mayweather fashion… using an 18 karat gold pen, worth $4,000.
The pen is called a Peerless 125, made by a company called Cross. This specific pen is limited to just 125 pieces, and touted as one of the most expensive pens in the world.
In a recent interview, the boxing star explains the significance of the pen… revealing that he’s keeping the pen as a piece of boxing history, never to be used again.
“I wanted to do something different. I wanted this to be a part of history,” Mayweather explains. “Normally, people sign contracts in sports and the entertainment field, but no one ever keeps the pen. Or, that’s never an issue, whereas now, with me being in sports/entertainment, it’s time to step outside the box and do something different.
“I know the signature is very valuable, but the pen is valuable also,” he continued. “So, it was a great thing, using the Cross Pen. It was only used for the signature. It will never be used again. You know, a part of history.”
Mayweather says the Peerless 125 pen by Cross will be on display at the MGM Grand very soon, so sports fans can see the pen that made history for themselves.
