Floyd Mayweather Jr

Floyd Mayweather Jr. net worth: Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the greatest professional boxers of all time and has a net worth of $460 million.

That number just jumped substantially after Mayweather came out of retirement to box UFC star Conor McGregor, finishing him by TKO in the 10th round and moving his boxing record to a brilliant 50-0.

Mayweather allegedly made over $300 million for that fight.  So after the IRS takes their half and Floyd pays $22 million in back-taxes from 2015, plus treats his team to some new toys, we’re estimating he’ll actually pocket around $120 million from the McGregor fight.

One thing’s for sure: from “Pretty Boy” to “Money,” Floyd Mayweather Jr. always lives up to his nicknames.  And there’s a few important lessons we can all learn from him.

Floyd Mayweather net worth lessons

1) Go all in on your “one thing.”  With the help of his father and uncles, Floyd knew boxing was his meal ticket, even as a kid.  As he got older, he took a big risk, and dropped out of school, just so he could practice more.  As soon as you find your signature strength, drop everything and practice that as much as you can.

2) Don’t be a middleman.  Be an owner.  (Or do both.)  Instead of just being a boxer, Floyd started Mayweather Promotions so he could double-dip on his boxing dominance.  Another ballsy move that allowed him to set the price, control the deals, and manage the process end-to-end, netting him multiples more than he would’ve earned merely dodging punches.

3) Polarizing is more profitable than politically correct.  Floyd Mayweather Jr. became the loud, flashy, arrogant, unapologetic CEO of The Money Team because it paid a helluva lot better than “humble boxer.”  This isn’t to say every entrepreneur should go follow Floyd’s lead and become the bad boy of their industry – but at least leverage your God-given voice.
