For the second consecutive year, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is projected to be the highest-earning athlete in American sports, according to a study released Wednesday by Sports Illustrated.
The boxer is projected to make a whopping $90 million in 2013, far surpassing the second-highest earner, LeBron James, who will make just over $56.5 million.
The estimates -- which combine salary, winnings, and endorsements -- have Drew Brees, Kobe Bryant, and Tiger Woods rounding out the top five.
The magazine projects the top 50 earners, and baseball players are the most-represented group, with 25 players making the list. Next is basketball players (13) and football players (eight).
No females are on the list for the fifth straight year.
