A picture of what seemed to be the check issued to Floyd Mayweather Jr. from Golden Boy Promotions as a purse for his fight on Saturday, 14 September 2013 against Saul Alvarez at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. Floyd Mayweather won easily on a majority decision that is supposed to be a unanimous.
The total amount is USD 41.5M, according to a tweet from Fight_Ghost (@Fight_Ghost) on twitter. This became USD 40.870M after some deductions. This amount doesn’t include the pay-per-view share for Money May that will be determined soon.
Wow! How nice it is to be a boxer like Mayweather. Nice if you have the skill like him because it will an “easy work… easy work baby” this is what Floyd and his team use to say. Just like that for 12 rounds. If you are going to break it down: 40 divided by 12 rounds X 3 minutes = USD 1.13M per minute. Therefore, Floyd rate is a shocking USD 1.13M per minute. And let us try also to break it down in per-punch basis.
According to Compubox, Mayweather thrown a total of 505 punches. So USD 40.870M divided by 505 punches = USD 80, 930 per punch. Perhaps the most expensive punch thrown in boxing.
If I know from the beginning that a boxer like Mayweather could earn as much as 40 Million in just one fight; I’d rather continue my interest and passion of boxing before. But my parents wanted me to held a pen than wore a boxing gloves that is why I’am writing not-boxing, about, silly at times, boxing articles. But if I continue, I think I will not earn also like this amount, because my boxing skills ain’t like The ‘Money May’. There is only one Floyd Mayweather… sorry there is another one: the senior.
