Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao collected a large sum of cash after their “Fight of the Century,” so much so that both boxers top Forbes’ annual list of the highest-paid athletes.
The top 100 athletes on the list released Wednesday by Forbes, were paid $3.2 billion over the past year. That’s a 17 percent increase over 2014’s list.
Mayweather tops the list at an estimated $300 million. It is the second year in a row the undefeated boxer has been at the top spot.
