Floyd has another title under his belt: The World’s Highest-Paid Athlete.

Forbes has released its 2015 list of the wealthiest sports people in the world, with boxing champs, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao ranked 1 and 2 respectively.

According to the new Forbes list, Floyd Mayweather has a cumulative earnings of $300m, with over $100m coming from his match with Pacquiao on May 2, 2015.

Reported to have received a total of $125m from the fight, Pacquiao has an estimated cash of $160 million, making him No. 2 on the Forbes ‘Highest-Paid Athletes List’ for 2015.

The boxers earned a combined $460 million in the past 12 months, mostly thanks to their lucrative ‘fight of the century’ at the MGM Arena in May.
Mayweather’s eye-watering £194m sees him atop of the Forbes rich list for 2015 while Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest paid footballer with earnings of over £51m.

Seven Britons feature in the 100-person list, with Rory McIlroy, Lewis Hamilton, Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney, Andy Murray, Justin Rose and Frank Lampard included.
