How to Make Big Money in Sports? Be a Man

Mayweather Becomes Highest Paid Athlete With $275m A Night

Floyd Mayweather Jr is on the first place with $285 million, while LeBron James is now sixth - $88.5 million.

The pugilist's income is comprised of roughly $275 million in salary in 2017 and $10 million in endorsements, enough to give all 325 million Americans about 88 cents each.

Forbes's sporting rich list is created after calculating an athlete's earnings from prize money, salaries and bonuses in the year to June 1, 2018. The Forbes top-100 list includes athletes from all over the world, and golf came in fifth with five players represented.

"Congrats to all of the athletes who made the Forbes list", Mayweather posted on Instagram.

Like he did to Conor McGregor in August, Floyd Mayweather has now thoroughly trounced Cristiano Ronaldo.

Jordan Spieth sat right behind him in 23rd ($41.2 million), with Rory McIlroy lying at 27th ($37.7 million).

Trump decides to leave G7 meeting in Quebec early after trade dispute
But despite the rows over trade and Russia, Trump rated his relationship with other G7 leaders as 10 out of 10. Macron and Trudeau both were expected to have formal meetings with Trump later in the day.

The final golfer in the top 100 is Justin Thomas, with $26m.

What sets golfers apart, of course, is how they primarily earn their money. In the past, tennis players Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova have figured, but Williams took time out to have a baby, while Sharapova has suffered as a result of a drugs ban.

The 100 highest-paid athletes earned a collective $3.8 billion during the past 12 months, up 23% from a year ago. "She's more popular than ever with corporate sponsors". There are five golfers in the list, 18 American footballers, 14 baseball players, nine footballers, four boxers, four tennis players, three racing drivers, and one each from cricket (Virat Kohli), mixed-martial arts (McGregor) and athletics (Usain Bolt).

The list included athletes from 22 countries in 11 sports.

Lewis Hamilton led the auto racing field at $51 million.
