Report: Floyd Mayweather received $1 million for Burger King sponsorship
While the actual match may have been less than exhilarating, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao's walks to the ring were everything fans could have hoped for.
Pacquiao was joined by friend and duet partner Jimmy Kimmel, dressed in his most Bieber-ish duds, But Mayweather stole the show with a surprisingly clean cut Justin Bieber and an appearance from the Burger King, which cost the fast food chain $1 million.
Fortune is reporting that Burger King, along with Hublot and FanDuel who were both featured on the boxers trunks, each paid the undefeated boxer a roughly $1 million fee to be a part of the fight of the century.
The big cost may have been worth it according to Fortune, as the pay-per-view set a new record with over 3 million buys.
Mayweather has already made $100 million for the bout against Pacquiao, and may make up to $80 million more once all the money has been counted.
