Mayweather has had an amazing career. The American outclassed almost all of his opponents and retired at the top. After racking up 49 victories over world-class athletes, he called it quits. However, when Conor McGregor came knocking at the door, the opportunity was too good for Mayweather to turn down.

At 40 years of age, Mayweather came out of retirement. The duo collided in 2017. Unsurprisingly, the American boxer stopped the debuting Irishman inside 10 rounds. And earned an estimated fortune of $300 million in that fight alone.
