Incarcerated Floyd Mayweather Still the Highest Paid Athlete in the World


Although Floyd Mayweather is still incarcerated, he’s in no way incompetent. In fact, outside of jail, he’s a smart and shrewd businessman.

Even more so… he’s the highest paid athlete in the world.

EURweb reports that although Floyd only fought twice last year, he made $85 million, bringing him to the No.1 spot and beating out Tiger Woods, whose held the spot since 2001.

For those who didn’t know, Floyd has maximized his income by acting as his own promoter. He collects ticket revenue, pay -per-view, sponsorships and basically decides how much his opponent will collect.
