LAS VEGAS — Just last month the world’s best pound for pound boxer predicted the outcome of last night’s fight at a press conference in Atlanta, Georgia which was covered by Hip Hop Enquirer magazine. HHE has covered many of Mayweather’s fights in the past and when he walked out last night his confidence level was clear, he came to bring the pain and won a unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring it 117-111, to keep his WBC welterweight title.

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., the highest-paid athlete in the world last year with earnings of $85 million, according to Forbes Magazine, is well on his way to the top spot for this year.

Mayweather’s contract, filed on Friday afternoon with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, calls for him to earn a record-tying guarantee of $32 million for his welterweight world-title fight against Robert Guerrero on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Mayweather’s purse ties the all-time record for the largest single-fight contract in history, which he set last May for his unanimous decision win against Miguel Cotto, earning him a junior middleweight world title.

“I think when you see a total like that it speaks for itself,” Golden Boy Promotions chief executive Richard Schaefer, whose company will pay Mayweather, told ESPN.com. “He has established clearly that level of $32 million as a guarantee and remember: He will make much more after everything is counted because he keeps 90 percent of the profit from the event. The $32 million is just the contract minimum. The bulk of everything else goes to him.”
