Undefeated boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather lives up to his nickname and once again finds himself atop ESPN’s list of the 25 Top-Paid Athletes in the World.

The undefeated champion stands to make at least $73.5 million dollars, which is over $20 million more than the next highest paid athlete, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo ($50.2 million).

The new list reflects guaranteed salaries for each athlete, not including endorsement deals.  Mayweather’s total is the guaranteed minimum for his two 2014 bouts.

Mayweather topped Sports Illustrated‘s list of highest-earning athletes for both 2012 and 2013.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers will get paid $40 million this year, making him the top paid NFL player, followed by fellow quarterbacks Matthew Stafford ($31.5 million) and Tom Brady ($31 million).

Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant falls at number 8 on the list. As the top-paid NBA player, Bryant will make $30.5 million in 2014.

Zack Greinke and Ryan Howard are listed 11 and 16, respectively, on the list, making them the top-paid MLB stars. Greinke will take home $28 million, and Howard $25 million.

Mayweather’s next fight is scheduled for May 3 against Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
