When all was said and done, Floyd Mayweather proved once again that he's the best in the world.
He's not only the best boxer in the world, but he's also pretty damn good at making money. You may have already seen the check that he received in the amount of just over $40 million. Believe it or not, that's just a fraction of what he's making for the fight.
The fight set a record for the highest grossing Pay-Per-View fight of all time, generating 2.2 million PPV buys for a total of $150 million. That beat the former record of $136 million, set when Mayweather fought Oscar De La Hoya.
Mayweather Promotions chief executive Leonard Ellerbe says that the champ has a chance to top $100 million from this fight alone, after he gets paid his share of the PPV buys.
This is pretty insane, but it's true. Floyd Mayweather is a masterful boxer, but if there's anything he might be better at, it's getting massive amounts of money. Well played, Floyd.
