Play associated audio
Floyd Mayweather may be the best boxer in the world. He's undefeated, 41-and-0, and has held world titles in five different weight divisions.

He returns to the ring tonight for the first time in 16 months, and this time, he has complete control — he gets a piece of every T-shirt sold, of every hot dog consumed, of every $59.99 a pay-per-viewer shells out. He even pays his opponent, Victor Ortiz. Weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz talks with NPR's Mike Pesca about the man who calls himself "Money Mayweather."
