They don't call him "Money" Mayweather for nothing.

Floyd Mayweather tops Forbes list of highest-paid celebrities with $300 million, thanks in large part to the fight against Manny Pacquiao. Speaking of which, Pacquiao came in second yet again with $160 million. The two fighters top musical acts such as Katy Perry and One Direction. That's big money.

Other athletes to make the list are Cristiano Ronaldo with nearly $80 million, Lionel Messi with $74 million, and Roger Federer with just under $70 million. NBA stars LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant also make the list.
