    Tough night betting for Floyd Mayweather jr?

    Floyd Mayweather Jr, the current WBC welterweight titleholder who will face Miguel Cotto on May 5 in Las Vegas, is rumored to have laid down a bet on the Duke vs North Carolina basketball game earlier today, and is also rumored to have lost a substantial chunk of money.
    [ Related: Mayweather Interview With Bob Costas ]
    Mayweather is said to have bet $990,000 on Duke, who lost 88-70. Bryan Armen Graham of Sports Illustrated tweeted the rumor earlier. Thus far, The Money Team has not tweeted about it, which Floyd likes to do when he wins, which of course doesn't account for his losses.

    Look, I don't really care if Mayweather lost $990,000 on Duke or not, but if there comes a day when Mr. $40 Million a Fight isn't doing so great, these things should be archived so that future generations can understand how one of boxing's biggest stars over an era squandered too much of his money.
    Gambling is fun. I don't do it, because I don't have enough money, and I can't afford to be all betting the rent money on stuff, because I'm also not very good at it. I don't blame Floyd for gambling. Good for him. Maybe he's just enjoying life as he sees fit. Not my concern. I sure hope he's not 43 years old someday and making people forget who he used to be because of his money problems, though.

    Course you won't hear or see the bet slip from Mayweather

    he hasn't posted a winning ticket in awhile

    He is a degen that is the most overrated boxer in history.

    He makes these bets all the time and alot off of credit and just gets lucky with a big win every
    once in awhile

    Why would anyone even take duke today anyway

    Who gives a shit. He never posts his losers, but has no problem gloating over a win. I wish MP would fight and kill him.

    This is the first time he talked about a play before it was finished. Otherwise he posts winning tickets after the game. So there's no question he's a terrible gambler and down huge.

    I'm guessing he's down 20 mill+.

    A professional boxer betting in college basketball? bad thing. A college basketball player betting on boxing has better odds.

    Don't bet what you can't afford to lose.

    He can afford to lose $990,000... but since he habitually loses a shitton of money, yes it seems obvious that he's a degenerate gambler and he'll probably go broke by the time he's 45-50 unless he destroys his legacy by fighting well after his prime or he cuts out the gambling.

    The best boxer in the world, his deffense is probably one of the most impressive in the history of boxing, 42 wins in a row,( imagine a parley with 42 wins) why would he bet on anyone else but him self? legal issues i guess.

    How much is this guy even worth? 20-30 million at most? Wasnt he broke like 3 years ago with a bunch of IRS issues and thats why he teamed up with oscar de la hoya? Correct me if im wrong but even if this guy has 50 million hes in no way shape or form rich enough to bet 1M a pop. You can whipe out your networth in a bad streak betting that much. Since mayweather like most athletes have no marketable skills past their playing careers it would be a shame if adter he retires in 5 years he'll be broke.

    im sure he loses more than he wins..it happens to every gambler living in vegas at some point, but rumors are nothing but mouthpieces trying to sound like they know something...without a ticket, dont take any info seriously when it deals with huge amounts like a million and stupid shit like "tweeting"
