Boxer Floyd Mayweather beat Marcos Maidana on Saturday night to bring his overall record to 46-0. Some saw his victory in a close judges’ decision as suspect, and Maidana himself woofed after the fight that he should have been given the win.
But here’s one thing that’s not up for debate: Mayweather made a mint for the fight — $32 million in guaranteed money, to be precise, plus a portion of pay-per-view receipts.
Another thing not up for debate: Mayweather is far from shy. He took to Instagram on Monday evening to boast about his earnings: http://instagram.com/p/nooJlnR3X4/
Mayweather said in the photo’s caption that he’s hoping for a $70 million payday after pay-per-view numbers come in. Whether that’s actually an attainable number is up for debate, but $14,815 per second in guaranteed money sure ain’t shabby. (Of course, weeks of training and other preparation preceded the actual 36-minute fight, but still.)
Mayweather is a master of social media and self-promotion; on Tuesday, he posted this miniature supercut of himself both whaling on Maidana, and evading his opponent’s blows: http://instagram.com/p/npQeW3R3ZZ
And on Saturday, Mayweather posted the following selfie of himself posing on fight night with, um, Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne. (Side note: What a world, folks). Further proving his marketing prowess, Mayweather posted the photo via Shots, an app in which he’s an investor.
Maidana received a $1.5 million guarantee for Saturday’s fight, according to Forbes. That’s pretty sweet, but we can’t get our heads around Mayweather’s $14,000 per second number.

A strong contender for the undisputed title of “Biggest Baller in Boxing,” Floyd Mayweather has offered the world a glimpse of his impressive auto collection. Or, should we say, part of his impressive auto collection. The welterweight superstar has something of a weakness for lavish motors and this selection of eight is just what he keeps at his Las Vegas home. Or is that, one of his Las Vegas homes? There’s a pattern here, and it’s not just the ice white paint jobs and fur lined interiors of the Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Rolls Royces, and Bugattis that make up Floyd’s fleet. One thing’s for sure: the man has a lot of cash, and he’s not afraid to show it.
