Floyd Mayweather is known for a few things. First and foremost, he’s known as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. He’s never lost and he’s basically been carrying the sport for several years now. Regardless of whether you like him or not, and many people don’t, there’s no denying the guy is good for business. I shutter to think where the sport of boxing would be at without him.
But when it comes to things you hear about Mayweather on the internet (besides alleged assaults and alleged hits on people), it’s almost always in regards to gambling. You don’t earn the nickname ‘Money’ without first of all being made of money, but secondly, you don’t earn that nickname if you don’t fling a lot of benjamins around.
With the Final Four taking place this weekend in Dallas, you knew Money would be getting in on the action. But I don’t know if anybody saw this coming:

That’s right, $8 million on ONE game. An amount of money that could set multiple families for life, is being placed on one single basketball game by Mayweather. Wow. That’s really all you can say.
It should be pointed out that there’s no way to truly confirm that he’s placed that amount of money on the Final Four, but since we’re talking about Mayweather, I’m not really doubting it.
