Conor McGregor is set to surpass Cristiano Ronaldo in the Forbes competitor rich record following his super-battle with Floyd Mayweather. McGregor’s earning from that single fight is expected to be more than £77m without calculating his endorsements.
Ronaldo made around £71 million this year overtaking every other athlete, however, was overtaken by the 10 rounds boxing match between McGregor and Mayweather. The match held in Las Vegas was also titled the fight of the century where the UFC’s lightweight champion and the most qualified martial artist McGregor faced the undefeated and the most successful boxer of this generation Floyd Mayweather who came back from his retirement after his unbeaten record of 49-0.
Mayweather not only won the match via TKO but made the outstanding earnings of around £233 million from the clash of the century.
