Default wouldn't Mayweather make more money if......

He had sponsors? Some people believe that Mayweather jr. has ingeniously created this douchebag persona in order to sell his fights which probably has worked. Many people watch his fights to see him lose, but marketability wise, no big name business wants to be associated with him.

As the top draw in his sport (excluding Pac) he has no major sponsorship deals. Imagine Tiger, Jordan, and other top draws in their respective sports without sponsors? For many of these athletes they make wayyy more money outside of their actual sport salary.

People talk about how smart Mayweather is business-wise, but I think he has lost hundreds of millions in the long run.

I believe he has some with Monster Energy Drink and Reebok.

But no he makes the most money in boxing so he's fine. His way of selling himself won't allow him to get those big sponsors.

sammysosa, at 20 million plus, per fight, it shouldn't be about how much scratch, Floyd "Money" Mayweather makes, but how much money, Floyd Mayweather Jr., keeps...Iron Mike Tyson, earned enough money in his boxing career to retire and live comfortably...but Iron Mike Tyson, wanted to spend his money recklessly, on bengal tigers, mazerati's, custom made pimp suits, etc. and in the process, squandered a fortune, that he would only make, in the prime of his boxing career...sammysosa, we read all the time about celebrities, and pro athletes, going broke and filing for bankruptcy, because they think the money is never going to stop rolling in, my man...and floyd "money" mayweather jr., with the expensive cars, jewelry, and mob-style gambling habits, is a prime candidate...

this is not like Arum talking saying his ppv did this and he won't open his books, the 1.5 million for Mayweather/cotto is backed by HBO it's official and the 94 million is just PPV at ether 60 or 70 depending on whether you buy it in hd or not so add the gate which was what 11 mill or something like that, then you have to count all the other revenue which they havent reported, movie theatre, closed circuit, etc, etc so fight grosses over 100million+ Floyd gets paid from everything.

what today's fighters have to realize about boxing is, your career is very short, and boxing has no pension plan, so you have to have a serious reserve of cash, if the only thing you know how to do in life, is box (word)

in a way that's true. floyd never tried to develop the mayweather brand but that's his choice. maybe he didn't realize the importance of that because he's still fighting. michael jordan, even after he retired is still earning a lot of money off his name. that's something you can't expect with floyd. he's still one of the highest paid athletes in the world though.
