Floyd Mayweather Jr. is proud of the millions of dollars he’s amassed during his undefeated career.Mayweather, whose nickname is “Money”, is this year’s highest earning American athlete after picking up $85 million for fighting Victor Ortiz and Miguel Cotto.
And he’s not afraid to risk some of that cash either.
On Sunday, Mayweather placed a $446,000 bet on the Baltimore Ravens to cover a two-and-a-half point spread on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles defeated the Ravens 24-23, sealing the bet for Mayweather. It was only a small piece of Mayweather’s fortune, but still a hefty risk nonetheless.
To put the bet into perspective.
