Floyd "Money" Mayweather is one of the most famous boxer of the new century, even though boxing has not been incredibly popular since Iron Mike Tyson lost the championship belts (even less so since UFC has lowered interest in boxing by half or more). Despite the sport's decline, Floyd Mayweather has garnered a respectable buyrate for his fights. His dream match would be against Manny Pacquiao, but contract disputes have prevented it from happening. Instead, Mayweather's most high-profile fight was either against Oscar De La Hoya in 2007 or at WrestleMania XXIV against Big Show where he was promised upwards of $20 million, depending on buyrates for the event (I'm guessing his take home was around 10% of that amount).
