Floyd Mayweather is arguably the greatest boxer to ever do it and boasts an untarnished professional boxing record of 50-0.

Mayweather was untouchable during his prime, taking down the likes of fellow boxers such as Oscar de la Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Robert Guerrero, Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto, among many, many others.

He won at five different weight classes: super featherweight, welterweight, lightweight, junior welterweight and super welterweight. He’s also won 15 world titles in the WBC and beat 16 different world champions throughout his career, which began back when he was in high school in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and winning Golden Glove awards.

His most famous fight, however, came after Mayweather retired from boxing. He returned to the ring in 2017 to fight against UFC star Conor McGregor in a massive pay-per-view fight.

The McGregor fight saw Mayweather pocket a guaranteed purse of $100 million at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Mayweather is set to return to the ring against YouTuber turned boxer Logan Paul in June 2021, which should be another massive PPV event. Paul’s brother Jake Paul launched a semi-successful boxing career of his own, having won his first three fights.

The exhibition fight will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. The bout is sure to see both parties walk away with gargantuan paychecks.

Mayweather never had a ton of endorsement deals, though he had a notable sponsorship from Hublot.
