This year is yet another year that Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. has earned his nickname with guaranteed purses that will total $73.5 million. For his battle against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, Mayweather will earn a guaranteed (and record breaking) sum of $41.5 million. (I love boxing, and love the fact that I get to brag to my non-boxing friends that the highest paid athlete bar none is "Money" Mayweather!)

Regarding Mayweather's pay for his fight with Canelo, Leonard Ellerbe (CEO of Mayweather Promotions), quoted on ESPN, stated: "It's a wonderful thing. Floyd has put boxing on his back and crossed over. He took a niche sport and went out there and marketed a persona (Money) in the mainstream world and became the highest-paid athlete in sports."

THE ONE: Mayweather vs. Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez goes down Sept. 14th. in Las Vegas and live on PPV (pay-per-view) on SHOWTIME.
