What is Floyd Mayweather's net worth in 2021?

Mayweather has a current estimated net worth of $450 million, according to celebritynetworth.com.

However, Mayweather himself claimed his net worth is now $1.2bn, with half of the money coming from just two of his fights.

During an interview on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game YouTube show, Mayweather stated that he made $650m (£460m) in two fights, earning $300m for his victory over Manny Pacquiao and $350m against Conor McGregor, who he defeated via 10th round knockout.

He topped the Forbes highest-paid athletes list consecutively from 2012 to 2015, with the publication later naming him the highest-paid sportsperson in the world during the past decade (2010-2019) after earning a reported $915 million.

At the end of 2016, he was named America's richest entrepreneur under the age of 40, with a net worth at the time of $340 million.

Mayweather's earnings stem from his successful pay-per-view fights, endorsements and sponsorship deals, and has reportedly generated over a billion dollars in revenue throughout his career.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul

Mayweather's earnings are only expected to increase thanks to his upcoming match against YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul, which is set to take place on 6th June at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

A month ahead of the fight, Mayweather explained in an interview on the Disruptive Entrepreneur podcast why he accepted the fight with Paul - and just how much he expects to earn.

"A fight is something that goes on your record forever. This is an exhibition. Why not?" he said. "I told y'all I was an entertainr. I'm not just a fighter, I'm an entertainer."

"I can fight and fighter right now, and I can guarantee myself 35 million [dollars]. Eventually probably make... probably 50 million [dollars]. Just a regular fight."

"Or, me and Logan Paul or a YouTuber... we can go out and entertain and have fun and make nine figures. 100 million [dollars] or more."
