Floyd Mayweather Sports Illustrated highest US paid Athlete in 2013

Boxing PPV star and pound for pound King Floyd Mayweather once again topped a list as the highest paid athlete as another year passes. Last year Floyd Mayweather was Forbes number one highest paid athlete in the world as he brought in around 82 million for the year of 2012. Now, as the 2013 lists start to come out, Floyd has topped Sports Illustrated 2013 highest paid athletes in the US earning an estimated 90 million dollars. The competition wasn't even close as Lebron James was second with 58 million, 32 million behind Floyd. As the six fight deal with Showtime continues, the expectation is that Floyd Mayweather will be number one up until the year 2015, which is likely to make him the highest paid boxer in the history of the sport.
