Floyd Mayweather Jr. triumphed over Marcos Maidana Saturday night, throwing fewer punches yet landing more of them and ultimately earning the judges' unanimous decision — and welterweight and junior middleweight world titles — in Las Vegas.
But he earned more than a victory and titles — a lot more.
As ESPN noted, Mayweather raked in $32 million from the fight, which breaks down to a staggering figure: $888,889 per minute.

Of course, losing wasn't so bad either.
Maidana, Mayweather's vanquished opponent, still took in $3 million from the fight, ESPN reported, earning more in a minute of fighting (roughly $83,000) than the average American earns in a year.
