American boxer Floyd Mayweather also known as Mr. Money Man becomes the highest paid athlete of the decade with an amount of $915 million.

Floyd Mayweather shared the good news on his social media platforms congratulating all the athletes who made it into the list.

He beat the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who took second and third place respectively.

He said;

First I want to congratulate every other athlete on this list and second I am honored to have accomplished such record breaking numbers. No disrespect to anyone but I did these numbers really in 5 years due to a couple of layoffs and with NO endorsements. I never wanted an endorsement deal from anyone because my vision was always to be my own boss and have no obligations to anyone. So I started my own promotion company and own brand (TMT) in which we are continuing to grow and soon will be the endorsers. You can say what you want about Floyd Mayweather but the numbers and accolades don’t lie. This is truly about hard work and dedication and knowing your worth.
