Floyd Mayweather’s unanimous points victory over Manny Pacquiao in boxing’s biggest bout in a generation proved to be lucrative for ex-Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong after he wagered a significant sum in on the unbeaten American.

Mayweather now boasts an astonishing record of 48 professional victories over 19 years following the 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112 cards from the three judges in Las Vegas.

And this was good news indeed for Frimpong.

The Ghanian placed £50,000 on Mayweather to beat Pacquiao and was able to take home almost £80,000 after the 38-year-old overcame the popular Filipino.

Frimpong, who spent 13 years with Arsenal before leaving the Emirates Stadium in 2014, shared his joy on Twitter after posting a picture of his betting slip and the eye-watering amount of money he had fluttered.

The 23-year-old also shared a video proclaiming him to be “the new Money Floyd Mayweather” in reference to nickname of the unbeatable WBO, WBC and WBA welterweight champion.

Frimpong is currently plying his trade with Russian side FC UJA and is clearly not short of a bob or two since his departure from Arsenal and his sizeable winnings would have been a welcome addition to his coffers.
