The top two richest athletes in world sport are both boxers, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Both men took home huge amounts of money after Mayweather beat Pacquiao in their "superfight" earlier this year.
In third and fourth are the worlds top two footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Other footballers in the list include Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gareth Bale and Neymar.
Rounding off the top five is tennis star Roger Federer. Fellow tennis players to make the top 25 are Novak Djokovic (13) and Rafael Nadal (22).
The highest paid golfer is Phil Mickelson, ahead of Tiger Woods and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy. LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant are among the basketball players on the list, while Lewis Hamilton leads the Formula One drivers ahead of Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel.
Ben Roethlisberger is the best paid American Football player while Jon Lester is the only baseball player on the list. The other sports star on the list is Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is number 24.
Some of the crazy numbers on the list - Mayweather leads it by $140 million - go to show just how much money is involved in sport. Mayweather had just two fights in 2015 but is miles ahead of everyone in the rankings. There is an even spread of sports thereafter, those at the top of their field filling out the rankings,showing the power of money in sport.
