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. At the time, pay per view revenues were expected to exceed $180 million. Of that $180 million, Floyd was to be guaranteed $25 million up front plus an additional $20-25 million on the backend. 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.
Mayweather vs. Pacquiao finally took place on May 2nd 2015 in Las Vegas. It is expected to be the highest revenue-generating fight in boxing history. Floyd and Manny agreed to split all profits 60-40. Floyd earned $250 million off the fight. Pacquiao earned $150 million.
On August 26, 2017, Floyd Mayweather will fight Conor McGregor in what is expected to be the highest grossing Pay Per View boxing event in history. The event is on pace to have 5 million PPV purchases. If all goes to plan, the fight will generate around $700 million in total revenue across all sources and will leave Mayweather with a paycheck of $280 million before taxes. If that happens, Floyd's career earnings will top $1.01 billion.
Update: Floyd earned $300 million for defeating Conor McGregor. As a Nevada resident, he will not pay any state income taxes on those earnings. He will pay around 40% of his earnings to the IRS. Actually he will pay 40% of his earnings plus $22 million in back taxes that he owes related to his 2015 income. When it's all said and done, his after tax take will be $160 million. When added to his previous net worth, Floyd now has a net worth of $560 million.
