The list of the Most Powerful Celebrities was published again by Forbes and Her Majesty Oprah Winfrey was toppled from the throne. Oprah Winfrey dropped all the way down to fourth place though with annual earnings of $82 million. Very few celebrities in the world make more money than Oprah.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is only 37 years old and he is one of the very few celebrities in the world with higher annual earnings than Oprah. Floyd made $105 million last year. He's never lost a fight in his entire career and he has won 26 of his 46 fights by KO.
A lot of people in the world invest their hard earned cash in Floyd Mayweather and bet that he will win on his next fight. His next fight is scheduled for September 13 against Marcos Maidana from Argentina at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, according to ESPN, a subsidiary of Disney. (DIS)
Just because Mayweather has won 46 times doesn't mean he'll win again, it just means there is a high probability he will win again. I'll let writer and executive producer Jason Smilovic explain this concept of sure things in more detail here.
In the financial industry, we have a technical term for this: Past performance isn't a guarantee of future returns.
If you have been investing your money with him for a while, then your confidence in Mayweather has grown over the years, and it ' likely that you started your first bet with only $1 and you won and then you bet on his next fight with $2, and you won again, and then you bet on his next fight $5, and you won once again. That's exactly how you're going to lose your ranch the day he loses for the very first time.
