Floyd Mayweather was a pay-per-view powerhouse for HBO with his nine PPV bouts generating $540 million in revenue on 9.6 million buys for the network. He was part of the three biggest non-heavyweight PPV events in boxing history. His success made him the highest-paid athlete in the world last year with earnings of $85 million. Mayweather’s star power convinced Showtime Sports to ink the 36-year-old pugilist to a 30-month deal in February that is expected to pay out more than $200 million if Mayweather fights six times.
