Floyd Mayweather definitely lived up to his “Money” nickname as he made a ridiculous payday on Saturday night’s fight with Conor McGregor. But how much money did Floyd make? Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million and McGregor has a base pay of $30 million. Not a bad gig. Both fighters get a piece of the pay-per-view pie. Early estimates point that the Mayweather Vs. McGregor sold over 5 million subscriptions, making it the most watched PPV of all-time. Surpassing 4.6 million sold for the Mayweather Vs. Manny Pacquiao superfight back on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand. That was said to have $410 million in revenue and Mayweather walked away with $250 million. Plus, Mayweather and McGregor may break the ticket record that Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao set of $72 million.
Mayweather has hinted that he will make $350 million, making more in one night than any NBA or NFL player has ever made in their entire career.
Mayweather didn’t even have to put in 36 minutes of work.
Mayweather was seen flaunting his huge check on an Instagram video.
It’s good to be Floyd Mayweather.
