BOXING royalty Michael Buffer is worth £320m so it’s no surprise he has a house full of elaborate chandeliers.
But it appears the ornamental fittings weren’t quite ‘ready to rumble’.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY to my BEAUTIFUL WIFE CHRISTINE & to ME-the luckiest man in the world married to such a beautiful brilliant woman! To lovers everywhere-HAVE A GREAT DAY!❤️
The legendary MC, who of course has the trademark “Let’s Get Ready To Rumble” entrance announcement, once shared a video on Instagram of one swinging after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake.
He wrote: “Friday night 7.1 earthquake was well over 100 miles away and all our chandeliers were swaying especially the big one 23 feet above the foyer!”
Buffer lives in Los Angeles with his wife Christine.
And judging by his social media posts, the 75-year-old shares the living space with some adorable pets.
One of the dogs is called Butters, with a cat called Heda.
They are joined by dogs Coco, Lulu, Bitsy, and Gibson.

And family Buffer will be able to enjoy much luxury in their mansion with a lagoon-like swimming pool.
Parked up in the garage are the boxing ring announcer’s supercars,
One of these is a 2019 ZR1 Covette. Buffer shared a video of him driving the car out of a showroom and home on Twitter.
From announcing the weigh-ins and press conferences to grabbing the mic on the big night, Buffer has pocketed as much as £3.5m for a week’s work.
Buffer was born in 1944 during World War Two to an enlisted serviceman in the US Navy, but after his parents were divorced before he turned one, he was raised by foster parents.
When he was 20 he enlisted in the Army during the height of the Vietnam War, and served until he was 23.
After leaving the army, he became a car salesmen before embarking on a career as a model when he was 32.
When he was 38 he took the plunge in becoming a ring announcer, and in 1983, just a year into his new line of work was hired by Bob Arum to be the official announcer for all of his Top Rank boxing shows on ESPN.
He gained worldwide fame with his signature catchphrase “Let’s get ready to rumble” which he has subsequently trademarked.
At the end of the 1980s, Donald Trump made Buffer the exclusive announcer for all the bouts in his casinos.
He now regularly announces Matchroom shows, as well as being the main announcer for HBO, NBC Sports Network and German channel RTL.
