Floyd Mayweather Is The Highest Paid Athlete In 2013

Sports Illustrated has released it’s Highest Paid Athletes list, and boxer Floyd Mayweather tops the list for the second year in a row. Mayweather will make at least $90 million this year, and can make up to $128 million should he win his fight scheduled for this September.

LeBron James ($56.5 million), Drew Brees ($46.8 million), Kobe Bryant ($46.8 million), and Tiger Woods ($40.8 million) round out the top five. Mayweather, who finished first last year, is the only other member to finish at the top of the list other than Woods, who had been at the top of the list every year since Sports Illustrated started putting this list together in 2004.

Sports Illustrated takes a look at salaries, bonuses, winnings and endorsements to tally how much each athlete is making on a yearly basis. Because all sports aren’t on the same schedule — and because some start and begin in different years — Sports Illustrated explained how they decided on which earnings to include:

Endorsements reflect current deals, and salaries are based on current or most recently completed seasons; for instance, for NFL players the season that ended in February was used. (Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco’s new deal, which will pay him $20.1 million next season, isn’t reflected.) For auto racing and tennis, prize money came from the 2012 calendar year. Golf earnings are from July 1, 2012 through April 21, 2013. Boxing purses are from August 2012 through May 2013 (but projected money from bouts through September was included since fight deals are done on a yearly basis).

This list only includes U.S. citizens or those who play in U.S. based leagues. So some of the international soccer stars who would otherwise be on a list featuring the highest paid athletes, are not included.
