Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Athlete

Ranked by ESPN as one of the greatest boxers of all time, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was born into a family of boxers in Grand Rapids, Michigan and began boxing at the age of 7. He won his first Olympic title, a bronze medal, when he was 19-years-old at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, GA.

 

He finished his amateur career with a 84–8 record. Just two years later, Mayweather won his first world WBC title as a professional boxer, which crowned him champion of the super featherweight division. He currently holds the longest active unbeaten streak in a professional boxing career at 50–0, earning him recognition as the best boxer of his generation.

 

The featherweight champ was valued at $285 million in 2018 according to Forbes. However, the all-time champion’s career has been plagued by domestic abuse charges in addition to battery and violence cases.
