Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Takes Back Title of World's Top-Earning Athlete

Mayweather Becomes Highest Paid Athlete With $275m A Night

Let's take a look at just how good this previous year was to the world's five highest-paid golfers, as well as how they compare to the rest of the sporting world. But Williams took an absence from the sport to have a child, so her earnings weren't enough to make this year's list.

Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather lived up to his "money" nickname, grabbing top spot thanks largely in part to the $275 million (R3 513 713 500, 00) he earned for just 36 minutes of work in his fight against Connor McGregor in August previous year.

Mercedes was expecting to do the same, but it wasn't ready in time; they also chose to bring fewer sets of the softest tires. But the nature of the track, a lot of chicanes, the walls close in some crucial places - mostly exit of the chicanes.


According to Forbes, the lack of women on the list has a lot to do with the growing popularity of team sports and related licensing deals as opposed to individual sports, such as golf and tennis, where women having typically earned more endorsements. Well Mayweather, Ronaldo and Tiger Woods are the only three athletes to top the best-paid list over the past 18 years. Argentine soccer player (or "footballer") Lionel Messi ranks a distant second, with his $111 million contract with FC Barcelona. "You all are true champions". Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo - who topped the 2017 list - was No. 3 at $108 million.

The Notorious is now placed fourth with $99 million. Neymar $90 M 6.

Curry and Thompson had only a combined 21 points on a combined 7-of-27 shooting and a 3-of-15 mark from 3-point range. Therefore, Durant called Curry's 3-pointer "the biggest one" despite his superior efficiency.


"King James" edged Golden State Warriors foes in No. 8 Stephen Curry ($76.9 M) and No. 11 Kevin Durant ($57.3 M) as the NBA's top earner. While it's nice to get a little glimpse at just how much money is out there across a variety of sports, it's also a bit jarring.

British racing driver Lewis Hamilton is 12th in the list, with boxer Anthony Joshua 25th - and sure to rise if he can continue knocking out opponents. The top golfers behind Woods were Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas.

Trump signals support for legislation lifting federal ban on marijuana
Bill C-45 would allow individuals over the age of 18 to possess up to 30 grams of marijuana for personal use. My view is clear: "The federal law remains in effect nationwide, just as it does for heroin and cocaine".
