Boxing has knocked golf out of the top spots on Forbes’ list of the 100 highest-paid athletes.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. bumped Tiger Woods out of the top spot on the list, a position which Woods has held since 2001. According to Forbes, the Mayweather claimed $85 million for this year’s earnings.

Second on the list is boxer Manny Pacquiao, with earnings of $62 million dollars.

Tiger Woods landed at third on the list with earnings of $59.4 million, a drop of $16 million from last year. Forbes lists his winnings at $4.4 million, and endorsements of $55 million. His winnings have gone up about $2 million since last year, but Woods has lost some high-profile endorsements.

LeBron James is the highest paid basketball player, netting $53 million, which earns him fourth place. Tennis player Roger Federer comes in fifth at $52.7 million.
