Floyd Mayweather Net Worth
Love him or hate him, no one can deny the respectful and awe inspiring Floyd Mayweather net worth. Estimated at around 90 million United States dollars, he is the fourth highest earning athlete in the world. The first is Tiger Woods. Earning his first eight million dollars after beating Carolos Baldomir in November 4, 2006, he has made an average of around twenty to 25 million dollars per championship fight. His last fight against Sugar Shane Mosley in 2010 netted him around 30 million dollars.
Despite his riches, like any other athlete with so much money, he does also have his share of financial woes and troubles. However, with all that cash, he can afford to make mistakes once in a while. Leading his financial adversaries is the much dreaded taxman in the form of the IRS. Then, he also has a myriad of other bad purchase decisions.
Being one of the rare boxers to have championship belts across five different weight divisions, he can earn even more if he fights his closest and fiercest rival Manny Pacquiao, who holds seven different weight division belts.
If either camp ever gets to see an agreement on when and where to fight, Floyd can get $25 million up front and has the potential to earn upwards an additional twenty to 25 million dollars based on the pay per view numbers. That is not so bad at all for one bout for Floyd or even for Pacquiao. In fact, some critics are even saying that due to the high numbers that the fight will generate it becomes a business decision and no longer a professional fighting decision. Anyone want to get beaten up for a large amount of cash?
