More money, more money.
The world's highest-paid athlete just keeps adding to his wealth. Fresh off of scoring a unanimous decision win over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will see his net worth rise by 37 percent to as much as $330 million, according to a Wealth-X estimate report.
Mayweather, 38, is expected to rake in $180 million off the Pacquiao bout, including revenue streams such as pay-per-view purchases, tickets sold at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, merchandise sales, broadcast sales, sponsorship and other earnings. Pacquiao is expected to pocket $120 million. Not bad for a loss.
Promising a final fight this September, Mayweather seems poised to hold his spot atop the highest-paid athletes list for 2015 as well. And the rich get richer.
