Boxer Floyd Mayweather beat Marcos Maidana on Saturday night to bring his overall record to 46-0. Some saw his victory in a close judges’ decision as suspect, and Maidana himself woofed after the fight that he should have been given the win.But here’s one thing that’s not up for debate: Mayweather made a mint for the fight — $32 million in guaranteed money, to be precise, plus a portion of pay-per-view receipts.

Another thing not up for debate: Mayweather is far from shy. He took to Instagram on Monday evening to boast about his earnings:

Mayweather said in the photo’s caption that he’s hoping for a $70 million payday after pay-per-view numbers come in. Whether that’s actually an attainable number is up for debate, but $14,815 per second in guaranteed money sure ain’t shabby. (Of course, weeks of training and other preparation preceded the actual 36-minute fight, but still.)
