Forbes has come out with its list of the world's highest paid athletes and topping the list are two boxers.

Number one is Floyd Mayweather who took home $300 million in the past 12 months. Number two was Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather beat him in the so-called fight of the century in May.

Pacquiao made $160 million.

The athlete who may be considered the most overpaid in the world is Tiger Woods.

Woods made just $600,0000 on the tour, but is ninth on the highest-paid list.

Most of Woods' income comes from endorsements. He made over $50 million in all.
