Floyd Mayweather has a fight coming up, but we’re pretty sure he doesn’t really have to train all that much. After all, the fight isn’t with Manny Pacquiao, who might pose a challenge, but is more content to dodge Money and fight some stiff himself.
So, Floyd is biding his time by throwing down large sums of cash on sporting events. Last night, he threw down $50,000 on the Miami Heat -1.5 in the first half. He pocketed a cool $43,478.25 for his trouble.
Money! Dude probably doesn’t even need to fight anymore.
He sent out the following tweet earlier today.
Can y’all feel that Miami Heat… Got me paid last night….
Maybe we’re taking the no-fighting thing a little too far, but this isn’t the first time Money has won big on some stupid bet. He won more than $36,000 by picking the Miami Heat to beat the LA Lakers on Christmas in 2010, threw down $50,000 on the Cleveland Cavaliers last March and bet $1 million that the Patriots would thrash the Denver Broncos last December.
Although not all of Money’s wagers have been successful, those three were. It’s not like he needs more cash, but he really has nothing better to do, right?
