Pacquiao, Klitschko, Canelo hit Forbes Top 100 list

Floyd Mayweather isn't the only boxer hitting the Forbes 2014 Highest Paid Athletes list. Manny Pacquiao and Wladimir Kiltschko also managed to stay on the Forbes rankings this year as they have in previous years. Pacquiao ranked 11 on the list with an earnings of $41.8 million. Pacquiao had two fights last year, one against Brandon Rios in November in Macao and another against Timothy Bradley in April in Las Vegas. 

Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko also managed to stay on the list ranking at 25 with an earnings of $28 million. Klitschko's two fights last year against Alexander Povetkin and Alex Leapai lead him to be the third highest paid boxer in 2014. 

There was a newcomer to the Forbes list as well. Mexican sensation Saul Canelo Alavrez managed to crack the Forbes 100 for the first time in his career, and at the young age of 23 years old. Canelo ranked 66 on the list with an earnings of $21 million dollars. The fight with Mayweather likely drew the majority of those earnings but the young boxer looks like he could be seeing this list alot more throughout his boxing career.
