Floyd Mayweather filed a petition July 5 asking the for a reprieve from unpaid taxes from 2015 until after his fight with McGregor in August.

“Although the taxpayer has substantial assets, those assets are restricted and primarily illiquid,” ‘s petition stated, per the legal website Law360 (h/t ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell). “The taxpayer has a significant liquidity event scheduled in about 60 days from which he intends to pay the balance of the 2015 tax liability due and outstanding.”

Mayweather, 40, made $220 million alone from his 2015 fight against Manny Pacquiao. It is unclear how much he owes the IRS in taxes.
