Ksh30 billion richer! Mayweather smiles all the way to the bank

Floyd Mayweather is the first boxer in history to make $1 billion.

According to Forbes, Mayweather has joined the ranks of two other billion dollar rich sport stars, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods.

This is after he amassed a $300 million payout in the bout with Conor McGregor on Saturday catapulting his fortune to the billion dollar club.

Mayweather stands tall with a stellar 50-0 record after he out-boxed McGregor in the 10th round to win by TKO.

In the bout, Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million, win or lose, while McGregror was guaranteed $30 million. He however also raked in $200 million more from the Pay Per View (PPV) revenue earnings and gate receipts.

In 2015, Mayweather pocketed a cool $250 million fighting Manny Pacquiao in what was billed as the fight of the century.

Mayweather subsequently retired after the match with Pacquiao but was lured out by McGregor and the temptation to beat the 49-0 record he shared with Rocky Marciano.
