LOS ANGELES — By the time you finish reading this sentence — presuming you are fighting Manny Pacquiao and read at an average pace — you’d have banked about $500,000.

And here’s another $83,000* for reading this line.

Mayweather, who reportedly doesn’t read nearly as fast as he dances, earned roughly $83,000 per second during his Saturday night victory over Manny Pacquiao.

That’s based on Mayweather’s earnings of a widely estimated $180 million for his victory over Pacquiao in 12 rounds, each of which goes 3 minutes. The math: We took that $180 million and divided it by 2,160 (12 rounds x 180 seconds). So $83,333, to be exact.

For his part, Pacquiao, who was awarded $120 million, earned $55,555 per second. That’s still far more than the slightly more than $44,000 that the average U.S. worker earns in a year.
