One of the most acclaimed, controversial, successful and highest-paid athletes of all time, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is one of just three athletes to earn over $1 billion in his career after a reported $275 million payday for his fight with Conor McGregor in August of 2017. While he remains undefeated as a boxer, rumors are swirling about a potential end to his retirement in the form of one or more MMA fights.
Here’s a closer look at Floyd Mayweather’s net worth in the context of his wildly successful career and controversial personal life.

Floyd Mayweather Net Worth: $560 Million

Floyd Mayweather has a net worth of $560 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Floyd Mayweather’s career earnings as an athlete are estimated to be in excess of $1 billion, which would put him in the hallowed company of just Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods as only the third athlete to reach $1 billion in earnings in their career. Woods and Jordan each have earned about $1.5 billion over the course of their careers.
Mayweather most likely entered the elite $1 billion club after his fight with infamous MMA fighter Conor McGregor in August 2017. That fight had a total purse estimated at over $400 million after factoring in the various revenue streams, and Mayweather’s share was likely in excess of $275 million. If that’s accurate — precise figures on the fight’s revenue and the split of the purse aren’t released — he will have reached that hallowed $1 billion tier based on the $700 million in estimated career earnings prior to the fight.
That was the second time in his career that Mayweather earned nine figures for a single fight. He collected an estimated $250 million for his 2015 bout with Filipino boxer and politician Manny Pacquiao. He’s made at least $40 million on four other fights in his career.

Floyd Mayweather Career

Floyd Mayweather is widely considered to be among the best pound-for-pound fighters of all time, having never been defeated in his professional career.
He began boxing as a child under the direction of his father and uncle, who were both successful professional boxers. By the time he turned pro in 1996, he had already won an Olympic bronze medal and three national Golden Gloves titles.
With a record of 50-0, Floyd Mayweather has never lost a professional bout. Twenty-seven of his 50 wins have been by knockout, and he’s boxed some 397 rounds over the course of his 21-year professional career. His win over Conor McGregor allowed him to pass a notable milestone: The career record of legendary undefeated heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano, who retired at 49-0 in 1955.
