They call him “Money” for a reason.
Professional boxer and serial gambler Floyd Mayweather cashed in on UConn’s 60-54 victory over Kentucky in Monday’s NCAA men’s basketball championship game, earning a cool $75,000 on a series of bets he placed on the Huskies before the Final Four.
Mayweather bet on both of UConn’s Final Four appearances, and he was rewarded with a $75,636.35 payout.
Mayweather confirmed his haul by tweeting a photo of his winning betting slips on Twitter. [tweet https://twitter.com/FloydMayweather/statuses/453444923249795072 align=’center’]
The outspoken boxer hasn’t been shy about betting on sports in the past. During the 2013 college football season, Mayweather said he put down $300,000 on Texas A&M and quarterback Johnny Manziel in an SEC matchup against Arkansas.
After Monday night’s big payout, we might be seeing more pictures of betting slips from Mayweather in the future.
