Floyd Mayweather Jr.
According to Forbes and Sports Illustrated, no athlete in the world rakes in more dough than American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. With 49 professional bouts under his belt, he has never tasted defeat. Mayweather has earned great respect to go with his 10 world titles and lineal championships in four different weight classes – a gilded and, some would argue, an insurmountable legacy. In addition to his titles, he has been named Fighter of the Year multiple times by The Ring, ESPN, New York Daily News and a slew of others, not to mention a Best of the Decade honor from Yahoo! Sports. At the age of 39, Mayweather is still in his prime. Currently the World Welterweight Champion, Mayweather is rated as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world by many sporting news and boxing websites.
One of Mayweather's recent wins came against Marcos Maidana in a pay-per-view fight billed as "The Moment." It was a welterweight champion superfight held on May 3, 2014, in MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Titles were on the line from the World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association, and The Ring. Mayweather won after 12 rounds by majority decision, which is when two judges vote for a winner and a third votes that the match was a draw. And who could forget what was called the “Battle for Greatness” where Mayweather defeated his most decorated adversary, Manny Pacquiao, by decision in the most watched event in pay-per-view history?
And then there’s Manny Pacquiao, a boxer who has who has received acclaim and admiration around the world. Hailing from the Philippines, Pacquiao has accumulated a one-of-a-kind résumé. In addition to having won 10 world titles and being named the Fighter of the Decade for the 2000s, Pacquiao has proven himself to be quite the virtuoso. When he isn’t dominating between the ropes, Pacquiao can be found on the basketball court, a film set, in a recording studio and even in the Philippines’ House of Representatives, where he has served as a Congressman since 2010. He is among the highest paid athletes in the world.
But Pacquiao’s forte remains the boxing ring, with nearly 60 victories in a career that spans over two decades. Pacquiao has proven time and time again that his other ventures haven’t caused him to lose a single step when he puts on his gloves.
