Floyd Mayweather, Jr. currently has a net worth of an estimated:
Floyd Mayweather is widely considered to be the top pound-for-pound boxer in the world. This is entirely subjective but you will find that the majority of boxing observers feel that Mayweather is the best in the world.
One thing that can't be disputed - Floyd Mayweather is currently the biggest draw in boxing. As a matter of fact, nobody else really comes close. You would have to go back to the days of prime Mike Tyson to find somebody who draws the type of attention and PPV (pay-per-view) buys that Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. does.
At the time that this profile was written, Mayweather had a perfect 47-0-0 record (26 wins by knockout) and was a five-division world champion.
Floyd Mayweather first burst onto the scene at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta when he won a bronze medal in boxing. Like many other boxing decisions (see Roy Jones Jr. decision as well) at the Olympics, there was a great deal of controversy when Mayweather lost in the semi-finals to Serafim Todorov of Bulgaria. The decision caused a great deal of uproar in the United States but Mayweather and the US Olympic team lost their protest. One thing couldn't be changed by the horrendous decision, however - Mayweather's skills had been shown to the entire world.
Mayweather turned professional in the fall of 1996, defeating Roberto Apodaca via second round knockout. Over the coming years, Mayweather would soundly defeat everyone of his opponents, usually via early stoppage.
The first title of Mayweather's career was won in October of 1998 when he defeated Genaro Hernandez in Las Vegas. In the following years, Mayweather continued to establish himself by beating the likes of Carlos Hernandez, Diego Corrales and Zab Judah.
Floyd Mayweather emerged as a superstar when he took on Oscar De La Hoya in May of 2007. The fight, which still stands as one of the biggest PPVs in boxing history (over $130 million in generated revenue), was won by Mayweather via split decision. This fight served to pass the torch from De La Hoya to Mayweather.
An important note from this fight - Mayweather earned $25 million (compared to De La Hoya's $52 million). Over the coming years, Mayweather would never relinquish his status as one of boxing's top stars and draws and his bank account would grow accordingly.
Mayweather has earned a minimum of $25 million in each of his last 10 fights. In his most recent fight (against Marcos Maidana in September of 2014), Mayweather took home a guaranteed payday of $32 million. In his 2013 fight against Canelo Alvarez, Mayweather walked away with an estimated $80 million after all of the receipts had been tabulated.
Mayweather's fight against Manny Pacquiao, which the two sides have been trying to put together for five years now, is going to generate Mayweather the biggest payday of his career. According to reports, Mayweather will be taking home a payday in excess of $100 million when he steps into the ring against Pacquiao in May.
Mayweather has never been one to really use his money to branch out into other areas. In addition, Mayweather's brushes with the law have made him undesirable to many potential sponsors.
Mayweather surely doesn't care, however, as he is likely more than fine with eight and even nine figure paydays.
