Although speculation over Floyd Mayweather’s retirement is inevitable, it seems unlikely he will pull up his gloves anytime soon. With an estimated worth estimated by The Richest at $650 Million or Celebrity Net Worth at $400 Million respectively, Mayweather remains well positioned to continue generating massive sums of income for many years ahead.
On January 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, former world heavyweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr will face Berto in his next fight. If he wins, his earnings could top $500 million; even if he doesn’t, however, there will likely still be plenty left over from previous victories; only time will tell whether his final fight ends on an impressive or disappointing note.
