This Is What A Check For $40,870,000 Looks Like


Floyd Mayweather got a guaranteed payout of $41.5 million for fighting Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Minus a few “minor” fees (anti-doping and ticket comps, which total $630,000), he received a check for $40.87 million. Via @Fight_Ghost, here’s what a check that big look like:

If you can believe it, this “base” pay might be only half of what Mayweather ends up making from this fight after he gets his cut of each pay-per-view buy and the concessions sold in the stadium. Estimates for Mayweather’s final payout range from $70 million to over $100 million.

Dude is rich.

    Mayweather is a punk. He only picks fights that he can win. If he really thought he was the best boxer in the world he would fight Pacquiao, but he wont. 45-0 is not impressive when all your opponents are 3rd graders on ketamine. All he cares about is looking pretty and making money.
