The World's Richest Names in Sports: Who Made the Cut?

The World's Richest Names in Sports: Who Made the Cut?

Floyd Mayweather's fat paycheck for winning his fight against Saul Alvarez made us wonder which American sports figures are getting paid the most. Lucky for us, Forbes has already done the heavy research, releasing their list of the Richest People in America. Nike founder Phil Knight is No. 24 with $16.3 billion, even beating out Michael Dell (you know, of the computer world). Malcolm Glazer and his sons placed at No. 102, raking in $4.5 billion after taking over Manchester United and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. No. 110 went to Nationals owner Ted Lerner ($4 billion), while Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs fell in at No. 193 with $2.8 billion. Check out the full list and see who else made the cut!


  • Tiger Woods and Floyd Mayweather are the athletes who had touched the billion dollar mark before Ronaldo

In his mid-thirties but Cristiano Ronaldo continues to set record both on and off the field. The Juventus and Portugal footballer has now beaten his arch-rival, Lionel Messi, in becoming the first billionaire footballer in the world. The Juventus forward earned a whopping USD 105 million before taxes and fees in the past one year to be crowned the sport's first billion-dollar man.

Ronaldo finished at the No. 4 spot in 2020 Forbes Celebrity 100, with Barcelona captain Messi No. 5. Overall, Ronaldo is only the third athlete to touch the billion-dollar mark, with Tiger Woods being the first (having done so in 2009) and Floyd Mayweather the second (in 2017).

The Portuguese footballer, in fact, is the first athlete to do so when it comes to a team sport. So far in his glorious 17-year-old career, Ronaldo had aggregated a total of $650 million and is now set to reach $765 million in career salary when his current contract concludes in June 2022. The rest (roughly $350 million) comes from sponsorship deals.
