On March 13, 2009 Mayweather was scheduled to face the fiercest opponent of his career Manny Pacquiao. The bout was probably the most anticipated fight in a decade.

Unfortunately Mayweather and Pacquiao could not reach an agreement and the fight fizzled for many years. Floyd went on to defeat "Sugar" Shane Mosley on April 1st 2010, and Victor Ortiz in 2011. On May 5th, 2012, Mayweather defeated Miguel Cotto.
On May 4th, 2013, Floyd earned estimated $50 million ($32 million guaranteed) for beating Robert Guerrero. On September 14, 2013, Floyd earned $75 million ($41.5 million was guaranteed) when he faught Saul Alvarez. That set a record for the highest purse in boxing history. A record which will easily be beaten when Floyd finally faces off against Manny Pacquio on May 2nd, 2015.
