What Is Floyd Mayweather Worth?
Floyd Mayweather's Net Worth is $650 million
1993 – 2000
While he finished 84-6 as an amateur, Mayweather’s pre-professional career ended on a bitter note. At the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, he lost a controversial decision to Bulgaria’s Serafim Todorov and was forced to settle for a bronze medal.
Mayweather turned professional on October 11, 1996. As a pro, Mayweather continued to win at an astonishing rate. In 1998, he defeated Genaro Hernandez to capture his first world title, the WBC super featherweight championship.
His career greatly accelerated even more beginning in 2000, when Mayweather embarked on a seven-year stretch that had many fight fans talking about him as one of the sport’s all-time greats.
During this period, he moved up in weight class four times, taking home the WBC lightweight title in 2002, the WBC super lightweight title in 2005 and the IBF, IBO, WBC and IBA welterweight titles in 2006. In 2007 he defeated Oscar De La Hoya for the WBC super welterweight crown.
The victories and paychecks only fueled Mayweather’s already sturdy ego. In a sport built on bravado, he proved to be one of boxing’s most polarizing figures.
In May 2013, Mayweather made headlines when he won a 12-round bout against Robert Guerrero in a unanimous decision at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, taking the WBC welterweight title.
Mayweather set the boxing world abuzz by agreeing to fight eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Displaying his usual airtight defense in the “Fight of the Century,” Mayweather held off his opponent to win a unanimous decision and retain his perfect record.
