Jump To Floyd Mayweather's Stats
Even though Floyd Mayweather enjoys an undefeated record in the boxing ring, the Megalomaniac has taken a beating when it comes to the boxer's image. Luckily, he has secured a financial firewall to offset media criticism as his net worth hovers in the area of $117,667,900.
Mayweather has been known to throw down a bet or two. But his brash, outward flamboyance has always been supported by his victories in the ring against all comers. Beside his undefeated record, Mayweather has captured five world championships in different divisions. He has won seven world titles as well as the lineal championship in three different weight classes.
The Ring Magazine has recognized him as a two-time Fighter of the Year – 1998 and 2007. He has also been honored as the Boxing Writers Association of America's Fighter of the Year in 2007.
The Grand Rapids, Michigan native currently holds the WBC welterweight belt.
The overriding promise that Mayweather brings into the ring is the promise of a victory and money. He claims his nickname is Money. To date, it is hard to debate. His last three fights demonstrate his zeal to bring in the cash into the arena.
When Mayweather faced Victor Ortiz, the fight generated buys from 1.25 million homes with a value of $78.4 million in pay-per-view revenue. That did not even take into account the gate. These numbers make the event the second highest grossing non-heavyweight pay-per-view event of all time.
Mayweather has appeared in the three biggest non-heavyweight pay-per-view events in the sport’s history, including the Ortiz match, the match with Oscar De La Hoya, which rung in $136.9 million and the match with Shane Mosley, which drew $78.3 million.
It's hard to argue with the first man to fight three consecutive times on pay-per-view and break the gilded one million domestic buys each time. If only he could corral Manny.
