Forbes. Mayweather, who made $105 million net revenue in the September 2013 to 2014 calendar year, also topped the list in 2012 with $85 million, ousting Tiger Woods who had held the distinction from 2001-2011.
Mayweather’s $105 million earnings follows two extremely successful fight promotions in the past year – his September 2013 pay-per-view revenue record-breaking bout against Canelo Alvarez and his most recent fight against Marcos Maidana this past May. Woods is the only other athlete that has earned over $100 million in a year’s time, a feat that Mayweather achieved with no endorsements.

“I’m grateful for my family, team and fans. Being able to take care of my family is my number one priority and the level of success that I’ve achieved allows me to give them the best. I look forward to stepping into the ring in September and doing what I do best.”
