They call him "Money" for a good reason, and in my strong opinion, he is worth every penny! Mayweather Promotion's CEO, Leonard Ellerbe has confirmed to Kurt Badenhausen of Forbes.com that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is set to shatter his pay-day record. And folks, I am talking mind boggling numbers here...but as I stated, our pound for pound king and top paid athlete across all sports worldwide, "Money" Mayweather is worth every cent. (Hey what can I say!?... Boxing Rules!)
So how much does the "Cash is King" fighter ranking in this time?

"Mayweather will receive a record $41.5 million guarantee for the Alvarez fight, according to Leonard Ellerbe, Mayweather’s longtime confident and head of his promotion company. It shatters the previous $32 million high set by Mayweather. He receives the guarantee right after the fight and then will sit back and collect his share of PPV receipts as they trickle in from carriers like DirecTV and Dish Network. It will be the biggest payday of Mayweather’s career when all the PPV numbers are tallied."
THE ONE: Mayweather vs. Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez goes down Sept. 14th. in Las Vegas and live on PPV (pay-per-view) on SHOWTIME.
