I will preface this by saying I am not gonna be one of those shelling out $89.95 to watch the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight on Saturday. But millions of other people will, which gets us to this tidbit that CNBC has put together. 

Assuming Floyd Mayweather makes — as has been predicted — $120 million or more, that means he will make in just one night more than the following companies had in profits all of last year: Sotheby’s, the auction house, Cheesecake Factory, GoPro, Smith & Wesson and Kate Spade.
