First I want to congratulate every other athlete on this list and second I am honored to have accomplished such record breaking numbers. No disrespect to anyone but I did these numbers really in 5 years due to a couple of layoffs and with NO endorsements. I never wanted an endorsement deal from anyone because my vision was always to be my own boss and have no obligations to anyone. So I started my own promotion company and own brand (TMT) in which we are continuing to grow and soon will be the endorsers. You can say what you want about Floyd Mayweather but the numbers and accolades don’t lie. This is truly about hard work and dedication and knowing your worth. @mayweatherpromotions @themoneyteam
In 2007, after pulling away from Bob Arum’s Top Rank he founded his own boxing promotion agency, the Mayweather promotions,
So far, the biggest cash stream the boxer has ever received was in his 2015 bout with Pacquiao. He was guaranteed a cool $25 million just for showing, and a further pay per view disbursement that should have brought in another $25 million. This, mind you, goes without mentioning the share he took from the $600 million fight purse when he won.
What Was Floyd Mayweather’s Earnings After Fighting Manny Pacquiao?
No one knows the exact amount he made from his fight against Pacquiao, but going by the figures, the boxer must have left for home with nothing less than $240 million.
According to ESPN’s Dan Rafael, his last fight, against Berto, was to make him at least $32 million whether or NOT he won. Floyd won and made home with twice the cash promised.
