Floyd Mayweather has been handed his share of the largess from the "big money fight" after beating Manny Pacquiao on Saturday (Sunday, Nigerian time).
“For my team to hand me a $100m check is remarkable,” said Mayweather, whose take from the long-awaited mega-fight with Pacquiao could eventually swell to as high as $200m once all the record-breaking revenue is counted.
The man who has named himself “Money” said the payout was all part of a
“brilliant game plan” for his career.
“My goal was to make nine figures in one night,” he said.
