AS well as topping Forbes’ list of highest paid athletes, Floyd Mayweather has been named the world’s highest paid celebrity by the publication, beating the likes of Katy Perry and One Direction.

Since 1999, Forbes have been ranking the wealth and influence of the world’s biggest stars, taking into account income, Google hits, fan base, press clips and magazine covers.
