At the height of his career, the boxing icon was banking hundreds of millions of dollars from fights against the likes of Irish MMA star Conor McGregor and Philippines boxer Manny Pacquiao – among others.

He runs several businesses, owns a number of properties and still competes in exhibition fights around the world.
