We all love money, and it is these inspiring and talented people who motivate us to do best in whatever we are gifted in. According to Forbes, Floyd Mayweather tops the list of 100 top highest paid athletes in the world between 2011- 2012. For the first time since 2011, Tiger Woods isn't number one on the list. Mayweather beat him to it this past year. What a boxer, even beating golfers!
Mayweather got a huge payday amounting to a total of $85 million for his flights against Victor Ortiz with $40 million and Miguel Cotto with $45 million. He is part of the 4 biggest non-heavyweight pay-per-view events throughout the boxing history.
