Floyd Mayweather beat Robert Guerrero by unanimous decision last night. He will earn at least $32 million for his trouble. Mayweather should earn much more, since he receives 90 percent of the fight’s profit. Guerrero was guaranteed $3 million.
Mayweather plans to fight again in September, making him the presumptive favorite to top the highest paid athlete list. Incidentally, Mayweather’s guarantee for the fight is $7 million more than the Houston Astros’ 2013 payroll.
