Boxer Floyd Mayweather tops Fortune‘s and Sports Illustrated‘s Fortunate 50 list of the America’s highest paid athletes for the third time.

Mayweather, a 37-year-old five-division world champion, earns a total of $105 million from his salary alone—he doesn’t even have endorsement deals. The staggering sum comes from a mere 72 minutes of fighting time against Canelo Alvarez and Marcos Maidana, Forbes reports.

In second is Miami Heat’s LeBron James with $57 million total earnings, and in third, Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant with $50 million total earnings.

Tiger Woods, who is ranked 7th with $35 million total earnings, had occupied the no. 1 spot every year from 2004, when the list debuted, until 2011.
