Forbes released its annual list of the world’s highest-paid athletes today, and for the third time in four years, the Money Man lived up to his name.

Floyd Mayweather earned over $100 million for his fight with Manny Pacquiao, and while Floyd emerged victorious in the so-called “fight of the century” Manny received quite the consolation prize – he took the number two spot on this year’s list.

Of course, Mayweather’s earnings weren’t limited to one night, and his total haul for 2015 is estimated to be over $300 million.

Much of that came from divvying up the ticket sales, pay-per-view buys and sponsorships from the Pacquiao fight, but Floyd also cashed in big-time from his September fight with Marcos Maidana, giving him the most lucrative 12 months in boxing history.
