They do not call him Floyd “Money” Mayweather for no reason. On Saturday, Mayweather will defend his welterweight title against Robert Guerrero in Las Vegas and he will be paid a lot of money to do so.

By a lot of money, we really mean a fortune.

The fine folks over at For The Win have broken down what Mayweather will make per hour during his scheduled 12-round bout with Guerrero. In total, FTW estimates Mayweather will be in the ring for a maximum of 75 minutes (12 3-minute rounds, one minute in between each round, and pre-match introductions).

Mayweather is guaranteed a payout of $32 million and will also take home 90% of the profits from the fight. FTW estimates that the combination could exceed over $50 million in earnings for the champ.

With an estimation of $50 million and a total fight time of 75 minutes (1.25 hours), Mayweather is looking at a guaranteed hourly wage of 25.6 million if the fight goes the distance. In total, however, that number could exceed upwards of $40 million per hour.

Simply put, it’s good to be “Money.”
