By Evan Stoumbelis

Boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather tops the list of ESPN’s highest paid athletes of 2013.

Just how much did “Money” pocket in 2013? 73.5 million dollars. Let that sink in. The $73.5M does not include money from endorsements or sponsors, meaning Mayweather probably pocketed at least double that number.

Mayweather continued his undefeated streak in 2013, defeating Robert Guerrero and Saul Alvarez via decision.

So who followed up Mayweather on the list? Cristiano Ronaldo who banked a cool $50M.

With Manny Pacquiao coming off a decision win over Tim Bradley, and talks of a super fight resurfacing it will be interesting to see what 2014 brings for Mayweather.
