The Highest-Paid Celebrities of 2015

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The Highest-Paid Celebrities of 2015

In 2015, Floyd Mayweather Jr. received the biggest payout in sports history – $300 million – all on the Manny Pacquiáo fight alone. That’s a ridiculous amount of money for even a hedge fund manager or the founder of a major corporation, but this is what pay-per-view gets you when you’re the world’s foremost boxing champion. (A reported $20 million paycheck for appearing in Wrestlemania doesn’t hurt things, either.)

Of course, #2 is the boxer who lost to Mayweather. Pacquiao’s take-home from the fight (a fight that he lost) was also a bit insane, racking up earnings of $160 million. It’s also strange to remember that he is also a Congressman in the Philippine House of Representatives. Though more likely than not, his wealth comes less from his political career and more from the boxing.
