Floyd Mayweather wins boxer of the year award for the third time
Floyd Mayweather has been voted the 2015 Sugar Ray Robinson Fighter of
the year after the Boxing writers Association of America announced it's
balloting results. This is the third time Mayweather will be winning
this award. He won it in 2007, 2013 and 2015 joining other boxing
legends like Muhammad
Ali, Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray and Evander Hollyfield as the only fighters
to have won the award thrice.
He won the award on the strength of his victory over Manny Pacquiao and
Andrew Berto last year.
Mayweather's fight with Pacquiao was by far the
richest fight in boxing history generating over $600m in actual revenue
with the boxer pocketing about $300m.
