‘Tough times don’t last, tough people do’ — Floyd Mayweather Jr.

come this is now great

CNN World Sport

When Floyd Mayweather Jr. stepped into the ring against Robert Guerrero this year, he didn’t just win his 44th professional fight, he added another $34 million to his personal fortune.

Forbes.com calculated that he earned almost $175,000s per punch or — the way I saw it — he could have paid off my 30-year mortgage in the time it took to scratch his nose.

Never has a nickname been more appropriate. They call him “Money”.

Later this year, Mayweather will become even richer when he takes on Mexico’s unbeaten light middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in Las Vegas.

It is hard to avoid the topic of money when interviewing Mayweather. The words “Money, Power, Respect” were plastered across both his cap and his t-shirt and it didn’t take long for the subject to crop up, though he brought it up first.
