Floyd Mayweather says he didn’t bet millions of dollars on the Denver Broncos to win the Superbowl after all

After what was an ultimately disappointing Superbowl last night, many American Football fans took some consolation in the fact that at least Floyd Mayweather lost a lot of money. Well, it turns out he didn’t.

The man known as Money was trending worldwide last night during Superbowl 48 as with the Seattle Seahawks so dominant in a game they would go onto win 43-8, fans wanted something else to talk about, or, more specifically, to take the p*ss out of Mayweather (see below) for betting as much as €13 million dollars on the Broncos to win ($10.4 million to win, $2.6 million to be leading at half-time, according to reports).

The story was reported around the world, including on our own pages, but Mayweather rubbished the reports with a picture message on his Instagram account in the early hours of this morning that we’ll let you read for yourself.

The sad fact of all of this is that losing that much money wouldn’t have burned that big of a hole in Money’s bulging pockets, but quite a few people would have enjoyed to have seen him being taken down a peg.

Oh well.
