- Floyd Mayweather made a staggering $500,000 for every punch he landed in the last decade, a boxing statistician claims
- Forbes reports that Mayweather earned $916 million for the 10 bouts he fought in the last decade
- Those bouts included wins over Miguel Cotto, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, and Manny Pacquiao among others
Boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather, made a whopping figure of $500,000 for every punch he landed in the boxing ring in the last decade.
According to boxing statistician, Dan Canobbio, a Compubox operator who analyzed data from Mayweather's 10 fights in the 2010s, the unbeaten American landed 1,833 punches resulting to all wins with two knockouts.
This means that Mayweather made an estimated $916 million from the punches he landed alone in the last decade as recorded by lifestyle magazine Forbes.
Mayweather beat top stars of boxing royalty during that era, including dominant wins over Miguel Cotto, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, and Manny Pacquiao.
He also finished Conor McGregor in the UFC fighter's only boxing rules contest to date.
Forbes earlier reported that Mayweather earned approximately $915 million for those 10 fights, and Canobbio used that figure to calculate just how much cash he received when it came to punches landed.
Canobbio tweeted that of the 4,270 punches Mayweather threw in those 10 fights, he landed 1,833 (a 43% connection rate), making $499,181.67 each time he rammed his gloved knuckles into an opponent's temple, chin, or ribcage.
Although the former five-weight world champion retired from boxing following his 10th round victory over McGregor in 2017, those in the combat sports industry suggest he could make a high-profile return.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Floyd Mayweather had again put up a massive show of opulence after gifting his daughter Iyanna a new Mercedes-AMG G63 2019 model which reportedly cost a whopping £150,000 as Christmas gift.
The boxing legend has a fully successful career spanning decades and basks in affluence and social prestige benefiting of a sports celebrity.
