"Forbes" has released its annual list of the "100 Highest Paid Athletes in the World."  FLOYD MAYWEATHER is #1, and there are NO women in the Top 100.  That hasn't happened since they started doing the list in 2010.

1.  Floyd Mayweather, $285 million, Boxing

2.  Lionel Messi, $111 million, Soccer

3.  Cristiano Ronaldo, $108 million, Soccer

4.  Conor McGregor, $99 million, MMA 

(Of course, $85 million of that came from his BOXING match with Floyd, who made $275 million from it.)

7.  Roger Federer, $77.2 million, Tennis
