News: Mayweather vs. Guerrero

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Guaranteed $32 Million for Tonight's Fight

Mayweather Vs. Guerrero (Saturday - Showtime, 9pm) - Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., the highest-paid athlete in the world last year with earnings of $85 million, according to Forbes Magazine, is well on his way to the top spot for this year.

Mayweather's contract, filed on Friday afternoon with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, calls for him to earn a record-tying guarantee of $32 million for his world welterweight fight against Robert Guerrero on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Mayweather's purse ties the all-time record for the largest single-fight contract in history, which he set last May for his unanimous decision win against Miguel Cotto, earning him a junior middleweight world title.
