The winner of this weekend’s “Fight of the Century”, Floyd Mayweather, showed off his big, fat $100 million check to press.

The undefeated champion said he didn’t want any pictures of the check, but gave ESPN hosts a look-see at the many, many zeros on his mind-boggling paycheck. Viewers only got a glimpse of the other side.

The check is actually just a down payment for that one hyped-up night of boxing. Mayweather could see a total of over $200 million once pay-per-view sales are tallied up.

Mayweather has consistently been the highest paid athlete, but with his possible $200 million earnings  for just one fight, the boxer is now on a whole other level. Only nine American athletes have signed contracts with $200 million, and those deals have lasted seven years or more.

Mayweather’s opponent, Manny Pacquiao, made $100 million for the fight and that figure could rise to $120 million. Both boxers agreed to split the fight’s purse, 60/40 before the match, with Mayweather gaining significantly more money.
