Let’s do some math.

Floyd Mayweather made $85 million in the past 12 months fighting two times. So, he made $42.5 million per fight. In those two fights he fought a total of 16 rounds. That is $5.31 million per round.

He made this money without one single endorsement deal.

You can call Mayweather a lot of things, but his Money Mayweather title fits him perfectly.
