Recently quoted by Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, Leonard Ellerbe (CEO for Mayweather Promotions) stated that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (currently the top paid athlete in the world 2 years running) will retire comfortably, with 9 figures and believes the only other athlete that has a chance of achieving the same kind of numbers is Golf superstar, Tiger Woods.
Regarding how 'Money' Mayweather will never end up broke,
Ellerbe stated: "Floyd's going to retire with nine figures in the bank."
Ellerbe added to the publication: "I think Tiger Woods has a very good chance of doing that, as well. I can't think of anyone else who has done that or who looks right now like they might do it."
