5. Floyd Mayweather-$1.2 Billion

This pretty boy sure packs an all-around punch. He's now a boxing promoter but, he was a professional boxer. He competed from 1996-to 2015. 2 years later, he returned to the ring. The Michigan native was born into a family of professional athletes like himself. So, he never intended on doing any other profession. What he has now is what many never expected that he would.

• 50 Wins

• 27 TKO’s

• 0 Losses

During his lucrative career, he was in other rings. Mayweather appeared at WWE’s No Way Out event in 2008. Additionally, he was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars season 5. Unfortunately, that was his only defeat. He was sticking and moving in and out of the ring.

4. Lionel Mesi-$1.14 Billion

3. Lebron James-$1.17 Billion

In the NBA today, he is the Micheal Jordan of it. Well, I don't think so. He lost what Jordan won. He also used more than what Jordan had. Despite that, LeBron is a great player. The only thing he may have on Jordan is wealth. Lebron James is wealthy. When I spoke of kids with perks, three of them are his.

Lebron has historical numbers on and off the court. The losing does not take away the endorsements. Nike, Samsung, Beats by Dre, Coca-Cola, and more. Lebron joined the lakers in 2018. The team hasn't been the same since. Lebron signed a $153 million contract for four years. James is a lot more successful off of the court.

2. Tiger Woods $2.1 Billion

Woods grew up in orange county, California. The child prodigy of Earl Woods was introduced to golf before he was two years old. Earl was very athletic. He played baseball two so, woods may have a little of that in him as well. Tiger watched most of it. He grew older and seemed to perfect it.

Tiger Woods is the only child. So his father spent a lot of time helping to perfect his game. He has two half brothers, a half-sister, and an extreme back account. The family man is raising his son the same way he was. He is number three because his wealth is generational.

1. Micheal Jordan -2.62 Billion

It is no secret that his Airiness is on top. Jordan was a 1st round pick to the Chicago Bulls in 1984. Jordan stood out as a tar heel from 1981-to 1984. Jordan gave Stephen say big in the water heater but what are you the bossteams nightmares on the court. Greats like Karl Malone, Clyde Drexler, and Charles Barkley know of this better than all of us.

• 6 Time NBA champ

• 6 Time Finals MVP

• 5 Time NBA MVP

• Current NBA team owner

Jordan won the NBA finals without playing a game 7. He was dominant on the court and off it. It's been years since retirement. He makes money off endorsers. Additionally, you could call him the shoe king. They're still top selling like he's still playing.
