Mayweather Has Everything — but Endorsements
(AdAge.com) — Floyd Mayweather has all the hallmarks of a breakthrough athlete. The onetime welterweight champion had star turns on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” the WWE’s “Wrestlemania” and even his own HBO miniseries and — in an undefeated boxing career that’s seen him post 41 wins — he has emerged not only as arguably his sport’s most-dominant athlete but also it’s most-compelling personality. That status was confirmed in his recent defeat of “Sugar” Shane Mosely that grossed more than $78 million, the second highest-grossing pay-per-view fight in boxing history. So, considering Mr. Mayweather has the media and the fans in his corner, one wonders: Where are the brands?
