Floyd Mayweather has been named the highest-paid athlete in sports by Forbes magazine, bumping off 2013 winner Tiger Woods by amassing 105 million dollars in net revenue.


The undefeated boxing superstar also topped the list with 85 million dollars in 2012, ending 14-time major golf champion Woods' run atop the 100-athlete list from 2001-2011, News 24 reported.

This time, Mayweather joined Woods as the only ones to top 100 million dollars on the Forbes list, thanks to victories over Canelo Alvarez last September and Marcos Maidana last month, and did it with only 72 minutes of work and with no endorsement income.

Mayweather said that he's humbled and extremely fortunate to be recognized by Forbes as the highest-paid athlete once again.

The magazine measures endorsement income as well as prize money and salary payments from June 1 of one year to the next.
