Guess how much money Floyd Mayweather made in his fight against Conor McGregor
You'll never guess how much money Floyd Mayweather made in his fight against Conor McGregor
No doubt the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor was epic and historic.
Mayweather gets to retire undefeated and McGregor made his boxing debut against one of the greatest fighters of all time.
But what's even more impressive is that in the time that it took for you to read up to this point, Mayweather made over $1 million. Mayweather is slated to earn a pretty penny -- about $250 to $300 million dollars, $100 million of that just for showing up and another $150 million to 200 million from pay per view. That's more than the GDPs for some countries!
The fight lasted nine full 3-minute rounds plus 1:05 of the tenth round, totaling 28 minutes 5 seconds, which means that if he does make $300 million, every second he raked in $178,041.54.
With his $300 million prize, Mayweather may well be over the $1 billion mark when it comes to prize money throughout his storied 50-0 record, according to Bleacher Report, having won $250M against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
McGregor isn't going home crying, though. He is slated to make $30 million just for showing up plus pay per view earnings, giving him a total that is higher than all of his previous prize money combined.
