Mayweather vs Guerrero purses: Floyd pulls in $32 million

USA TODAY Sports

Floyd Mayweather will tie his own record for largest fight purse when he makes $32 million to fight Robert Guerrero.

Floyd Mayweather's new deal with Showtime was called the "richest individual athlete deal in all of sports" when he signed it earlier this year. Not a surprise for the man who regularly tops the Forbes list of highest paid athletes.

But it is still always a little staggering to see the fight purses that "Money" pulls in when he steps into the ring. For tonight's bout with Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, Floyd will be tying the record for largest fight purse with $32,000,000, a record previously held by.....Floyd Mayweather. Floyd also made $32mil last May for his bout with Miguel Cotto.

Guerrero won't be coming near Floyd's take, but he has to be plenty happy with his $3,000,000 purse for the fight. That is three times higher than his previous career high, an even $1,000,000 for his last fight, a fight of the year candidate over Andre Berto in November of last year.
