Pictured here is American professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. As the world’s best boxer, Mayweather’s fists have dazzled every one of his opponents while compiling a perfect 41-0 record that stretches across 15 years.
Mayweather is a five division world champion, where he has won ten world titles, including the lineal championship in two different weight classes. This Saturday, at the MGM Grand in Vegas, surrounded by glitzy high-rollers, Mayweather will serve up a timely reminder of why his nickname these days is “Money”. Pay-per-view figures for his WBC world title welterweight bout against Victor Ortiz, who is 10 years younger at the age of 24, will ensure Mayweather racks up another multimillion-dollar purse.
