Floyd “Money” Mayweather has been the highest paid athlete of the last few years. He will face Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd, and his payday for that fight will break all boxing records. However, Floyd will only be breaking previous records set by himself during the course of his illustrious career.
Floyd Mayweather is the highest paid athlete for one reason, because he is undefeated. Mayweather has faced 47 opponents, and he has beaten them all pretty convincingly. Although, there were a few fights that he won by questionable decision, but nonetheless, Floyd Mayweather is still undefeated. However, Floyd Mayweather will fight Manny Pacquiao, and many fans like Dan Newlin think that Pacquiao has a legitimate chance to beat Floyd.
