Floyd Mayweather is unarguably one of the biggest superstars in modern boxing. The American boasted a perfect professional record of 50-0 with multiple titles in different weight classes under his name. Mayweather initially announced retirement back in 2017 after successfully defending WBA (Unified), WBC, and The Ring welterweight titles against Andre Berto. But it was pretty clear that the fighter would come back to get the perfect record. As expected, after two years in 2019, Mayweather came back and fought UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

The build of the fight was massive because it was the first time two superstars from boxing and MMA were fighting each other. During the build both McGregor and Mayweather went all out in trash talking to each other. This helped create maximum hype around the fight. In the fight, Mayweather beat McGregor via TKO and took home millions of dollars.

It was Mayweather’s last professional bout after that the fighter participated in multiple exhibition bouts. He went to Japan to fight Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018 and also fought Logan Paul in 2020. These exhibition bouts were extremely successful and Mayweather earned millions of dollars from them.
