Floyd Mayweather Bio:
Floyd Mayweather is back. His recent dominant performance against the Juan Manuel Marquez on September 19 further solidified Mayweather’s place as the best fighter in the world today. The fight was purchased in over one million homes on HBO Pay-Per-View®, only the fifth non-heavyweight fight to do so, re-establishing Mayweather’s unbelievable earning power as the pay-per-view king. In his last three bouts, including his win over Oscar de la Hoya which broke all-time live gate and pay-per-view records, Mayweather has delivered a total of nearly 4.4 million pay-per-view homes and over $300 million in revenue combined. Throughout his 20-year career, Mayweather has shown an unprecedented mix of speed, power and natural talent every time he steps into the ring—a combination that has translated to 40 wins without a loss, 25 knockouts and six world championships in five weight classes.
 
In addition to his boxing accomplishments, Mayweather has become a crossover star, appearing in the Emmy award winning reality series HBO’s “24/7” three separate times as he provided cameras with an all access look at his training and personal life. As a competitor on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, Mayweather was seen by over 35 million viewers each week, followed by appearances on WWE’s Wrestlemania and Monday Night Raw. He has been featured on the covers of top magazines such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine and Men’s Fitness as well as on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Live with Regis & Kelly and Chelsea Lately. Mayweather continues to carry boxing on his shoulders and has become one of the most recognized athletes in the world today.
