What a lot of people don’t realize is that boxers get their purse immediately after the fight. So, when it was filed to Las Vegas Boxing Commission that Mayweather would be guaranteed $41 million, that money had to be in his hand right after the fight and it was.
I think Warriors World sums up how we all feel right now.

The crazy thing is that this doesn’t even include the money Mayweather will receive from the gate receipts, sponsors, PPV and merchandising from the event.
