Boxer Floyd Mayweather was the world's highest-paid sportsman last year, according to the latest analysis from business magazine Forbes.
In what's his second year in the top spot, the sports star is believed to have made $300 million. Much of this came from his high profile fight earlier this year with Manny Pacquiao - who himself appears in second place on the list.
Mayweather's earnings break Forbes' previous record, which was held by Tiger Woods, with earnings of $115 million in 2008, or $125 million adjusted for inflation.
"Mayweather received a $100 million check on fight night, but the real payoff came after the revenue figures were tallied up. The fight was a dud in many people's eyes, but it smashed every financial record in boxing, including pay-per-view buys (4.4 million and climbing), total gate ($73 million) and sponsorships ($13 million)," writes Forbes staffer Kurt Badenhausen.
"The fight is expected to gross $600 million once everything is counted. The fighters and their promotion companies will divvy up roughly $400 million, with Mayweather owed a 60% cut."
In third place was Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, with earnings of $79.6 million; his team-mate Gareth Bale is the highest-placed British footballer on the list with his $35.5 million earnings putting him in 18th place. England captain Wayne Rooney was 34th on the list, with earnings of £17 million.
The figures include salaries, bonuses, prize money and appearance fees, as well as estimated licensing and endorsement income for the year to June 1, 2015.
