The Mayweather versus Pacquiao fight in 2015 generated over $410 million dollars and earned Mayweather an estimated $220 million. Not too bad.
The timing for the announcement comes at an interesting time, as it has been reported that Mayweather still owes federal taxes for 2015.
On July 5, Mayweather filed a tax court petition asking the IRS to grant him a temporary reprieve until the fight, where it says, “the taxpayer has a significant liquidity event scheduled in about 60 days from which he intends to pay the balance of the 2015 tax liability due and outstanding.”
It’s not known how much Mayweather owes Uncle Sam, but it’s estimated he will earn around $100 million for the August 26 fight.
I’m assuming that’s more than enough to settle his debt.
