WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather doesn’t need any more money - you know you’re already pretty well off when your actual nickname is ‘Money’ - but he has made a healthy $73,636 profit with two shrewd bets over the last few days.
Both wagers were placed on the University of Connecticut's men's basketball team to win - and they didn’t disappoint.
Mayweather posted the winning bets slips to his Twitter and Instagram accounts, and seemed pretty chuffed with himself, as we all would be.
Boxing’s pound-for-pound king is a keen gambler, but rarely talks about his losing bets. It would be interesting to know whether he has lost more than he has won in recent years - although it’s safe to guess he has probably won more considering the huge stakes he is able to put on each bet.
Mayweather did, however, once admit to losing $1m on a single bet in the past.
The 37-year-old lives in Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world. His next fight also takes place there on May 3, when he goes head-to-head with Argentina’s Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand.
