Mayweather’s Net Worth and how made his money

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a retired American professional boxer and boxing promoter, born on February 24, 1977. Throughout his career spanning from 1996 to 2017, Mayweather achieved unparalleled success, retiring with an undefeated record and winning 15 major world championships across multiple weight classes. He has been recognized with numerous accolades, including being named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2010s and ranked as the greatest boxer pound-for-pound by ESPN in 2016.

Mayweather’s defensive skills and accuracy in punching have earned him the reputation as one of the greatest defensive boxers in history. He holds several records, including the highest plus–minus ratio in recorded boxing history. Mayweather’s dominance in the sport is evident with his streak of 26 consecutive wins in world title fights and his victories against former or current world titlists and lineal champions.

Beyond his achievements in the ring, Mayweather’s financial success is equally remarkable. He is regarded as one of the most lucrative pay-per-view attractions across all sports. Mayweather topped Forbes and Sports Illustrated’s lists of highest-paid athletes multiple times and founded his boxing promotional firm, Mayweather Promotions, in 2006. Over his career, he has generated approximately 24 million pay-per-view buys and $1.67 billion in revenue, surpassing other boxing legends like Mike Tyson and Oscar De La Hoya.

In 2018, Mayweather was recognized as the highest-paid athlete in the world, with total earnings, including endorsements, reaching $285 million, according to Forbes. Furthermore, in November 2021, Sportico released an all-time athlete earnings list, placing Mayweather at No. 6 with an inflation-adjusted total career earnings of $1.2 billion.
