  • Mayweather Becomes Highest Paid Athlete With $275m A Night

The 50-0 former world champion doesn't exactly need another big payday after he was recently announced as the highest-earning athlete in the world, thanks mainly to his bout with McGregor a year ago.

The pugilist's income is comprised of roughly $275 million in salary in 2017 and $10 million in endorsements, enough to give all 325 million Americans about 88 cents each. Conor McGregor $99 M 5.

And if he can finally land that elusive 15th major, the 42-year-old American could easily find himself back at the top of the pile.

In 26th place, Rory McIlroy is the next highest golfer. Phil Mickelson is 22nd with $41.3m in earnings - $4.3m in prize money and $37m from sponsorship.

The absence of any women on the list is made worse by the inclusion of Mayweather at the top. Thomas earned a scarcely-believable $21m on the course and is now the world's top-ranked golfer, but he has a long, long way to go before he can come anywhere close to the likes of Woods, Mickelson and McIlroy in off-the-course earnings.

"Serena is still killing it off the court, "he said about the younger Williams earning potential". The 2018 list includes two stars of the NBA Finals but no women anywhere in the top 100. "She's more popular than ever with corporate sponsors".

The top 100 athletes earned a combined $3.8 billion previous year, the same amount as the annual budget for the entire city of San Diego. The group draws from 68 different countries, then narrows it down to the 100 most famous athletes in the world.

Everyone on Forbes' list was paid at least $22.9 million over a 12-month span.

You may wonder why there are so many basketball players in the list - and who wouldn't?

Lewis Hamilton led the auto racing field at $51 million.
