This is how you live up to your nickname.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid athletes in the world, which was released on Tuesday.

Mayweather took in $105 million over the past 12 months.

What's more amazing is that it took the boxer just 72 minutes of work (in the ring, technically) to make that amount of money.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo was a distant second, bringing in a paltry $80 million.

LeBron James ($72.3 million), Lionel Messi ($64.7 million), Kobe Bryant ($61.5 million), Tiger Woods ($61.2 million), Roger Federer ($56.2 million), Phil Mickelson ($53.2 million), Rafael Nadal ($44.5 million) and Matt Ryan ($43.8 million) round out the top 10.
