There’s been a rumor flying around the web the past several days that flamboyant boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather, Jr., bet $10.4 million on the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XLVIII. That would have been a massive loss given the Broncos’ dreadful performance on Sunday night.
Of course IF he did bet that kind of dough on a football game, against the best defense in the league he would have looked pretty dumb, IF the team with the best defense won, which of course in this case they did. Seattle absolutely shellacked Denver and Mayweather finally talked about the best.
He took to Twitter and Instagram to deny the rumors. The jury is still out as to whether or not he actually placed the bet and is now trying to not look like an enormous dumbass.
Somebody lied to you all. If I was going to bet, I would have bet on the Seattle Seahawks…. http://t.co/9GIt1IVx7e
