Floyd Mayweather has one of the most renowned boxing careers in the history of the sport, with his undefeated career stretching from 1996 to 2017. He’s ranked alongside boxing legends, including Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano, Mike Tyson, and Joe Louis. Fighting since the age of seven, he won his first boxing Gloves championship in 1993 and won bronze in the Summer Olympics in 1996.

Mayweather’s boxing accomplishments include more than 15 world championships across the super featherweight and light middleweight divisions. He is considered one of the wealthiest athletes in the world, earning more than $280 million in 2018, according to Forbes. In 2021, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. 

In his most recent fight, he came out of retirement to compete in an exhibition fight against YouTuber Logan Paul in June 2021. The match went the full eight rounds, but no winner was announced. Instead, Mayweather was praised for his superior skills, landing more than 40% of his thrown punches, while Paul landed only 12%, according to the match statistics. 

What is Floyd’s nickname?

During his amateur boxing career, he earned the nickname “pretty boy” Floyd reportedly due to the lack of scars or injuries on his face. Mayweather’s speed throughout his amateur and professional have helped him avoid getting hit or knocked down. However, when he made the transition to professional boxing, Mayweather changed his nickname to “money.”
