Between 2010 and 2019, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were the best players in the world and were amply rewarded for their efforts.

However, there was one man who made more money than the Juventus and Barcelona footballers.

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather led the Forbes Ranking of the Decade, which summarized all of the revenues of the world’s greatest sports stars over the past decade. For a man who loves making money, it was no surprise to see him at the top.

Below are the top ten highest paid athletes of the past decade, and you wouldn’t be surprised if any of McGregor, Ronaldo, or Messi topped the list by 2029.
