Is Floyd Mayweather Betting $5.9 Million On The Miami Heat Tonight ?

Business Insider is advancing the rumor:
A Twitter account called Vegas Gambling Stream says the word on the street is that boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is putting nearly $6 million on the Miami Heat tonight in Game 7[...]

Mayweather is a big-time sports bettor who's always tweeting out pictures of his winning tickets. He's also a Heat fan. This would be the biggest bet we've seen from him.
He's also the highest-earning athlete in the world, and he just inked a deal to fight Canelo Alvarez for a rumored $40 million.

He was in attendance for Game 5 of the Heat-Pacers series.


  1. A lot of people don't like mayweather but I recall seeing his car many years ago (a maybach 62 iirc,, with "mayweather" inscribed on the back) at a fine las vegas restaurant. I asked the valets about him and they said he was a very nice guy and a generous tipper.

    If the rumor is true, I wish Floyd-and the Heat-the best of luck tonight.
