Floyd Mayweather Jr. making big-time money from boxing
FLOYD Mayweather Jr. is officially the highest-paid sportsman in the world having earned $85m during an eight-month period ending in May last year.
Tomorrow morning (AEST) Mayweather returns to the ring for the first time since making $45m beating Miguel Cotto last May when he fights Robert Guerrero, a four-time world champion, at the MGM, Las Vegas.
Guerrero is the champion, he is younger and he has lost just once in 35 fights but, make no mistake, this is the Mayweather show.
Oscar De La Hoya is at the moment boxing's biggest earner generating $610m.
Tomorrow, Mayweather will add another $40m to $50m to his account and move closer to an unassailable position in the record books as boxing's biggest attraction.
