Premiere Of Universal Pictures And Studiocanal's "Non-Stop" - Red Carpet

5. Floyd Mayweather Jr., Boxing

He may not have the physical intimidation that some of the other guys on this list have, but seeing how he’s undefeated in his professional career with a 45-0 mark, we’d bet there aren’t too many fighters who are lining up to face-off against “Money” in the ring.
