Floyd Mayweather Jr. won nearly $500,000 on the Thunder (Picture)

One of the most publicized gamblers in America has been going hard in Las Vegas this week per usual. I wonder if Floyd Mayweather Jr. actually profits from sports betting or if he makes it a point to tweet out only winning tickets. Not that $1 million even puts a dent in his bank account, but you’d swear the guy is Billy Walters with all the bragging he does. Anyway, here is one of Floyd’s latest tickets that shows he won close to $500,000 on the Thunder last week:

Add that to the $333,333 he won during the BCS National Championship game. He also tweeted out winning tickets of $20,000 on the Wizards, more than $40,000 on the Heat, over $90,000 on the Warriors, and over $120,000 on Ohio State. He also responded “No” to one of his followers who asked him if he ever loses in boxing or gambling. Man up and show us some losing tickets, Floyd. We know you have plenty of them.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. says Jeremy Lin is getting attention because he’s Asian

Jeremy Lin is a bit of a mystery. How a kid from Harvard who was cut twice by NBA teams has become one of the league’s best players is truly baffling. All of us are confused about it in a way, but we certainly know why he has gotten so much attention. For starters, he was riding the bench for the Knicks a little more than a week ago. Now all of a sudden he has sparked their revival. The always outspoken Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a theory about why we can’t turn on the TV without hearing the name Jeremy Lin.

Normally I would say that’s inappropriate, but it’s so typical of Floyd that I have no emotions about it. If you told me somebody said the previous quote and gave me three tries to guess who it was, he would have been one of my three guesses. He should do us all a favor and stick to calling out Manny Pacquiao.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Fighting Miguel Cotto Because Manny Pacquiao is Ducking Him

Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues to talk trash to Manny Pacquiao, even though the two won’t be fighting in the near future. Mayweather announced Wednesday he will face Miguel Cotto on May 5th instead of Manny Pacquiao as many were hoping. Money couldn’t resist taking a jab at Pac Man, writing on Twitter:

Even though it was Floyd who was thought to be doing all the ducking in the past, he’s now turning the tables. Just because he’s been pushing to face Pac Man recently doesn’t make him a tough guy, but I like him calling out Pacquiao. If Manny is going to let promoter Bob Arum block the megafight everyone wants to see, then he deserves the criticism.

Step up Manny and make this happen.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.: May 5th is Manny Pacquiao Ass Whooping Day

Floyd Mayweather Jr. knows that his fight with Manny Pacquiao won’t happen before he goes to jail, so he’s talking as much crap as possible to make himself look like a badass. Witness the tweet Mayweather sent Tuesday saying May 5th is Manny Pacquiao ass whooping day:

With strong statements like that, is there any wonder why his fans love him? Just one question for you, Floyd: If you felt this confident all along, then why were you ducking Pac Man for so long?

Mayweather also tweeted Tuesday “I’m ready to fight Pacquiao 5/5/12 Bob Arum know the date can’t change I have my guarantee call Schaefer & Al and stop lying to the public.”

It’s nice and all, but we all know that won’t change anything. Bob Arum is coming up with every excuse possible to keep this fight from happening before Floyd goes to jail.

Floyd Mayweather Baits Manny Pacquiao with Picture of His Title Belt

Floyd Mayweather Jr. must be really confident that he can beat Manny Pacquiao. After all, anyone who follows boxing knows that Floyd only makes fights he knows he can win.

Floyd has been baiting Pac Man through social media all week. On Tuesday, he issued a call out of Pacquiao. On Wednesday, it was more of the same.

“I’m ready to put my belt up. What about you Manny Pacquiao? Let’s make history,” he tweeted, with the picture above accompanying the message.

Like I said, Money must have seen something in Pacquiao’s latest fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, because he wouldn’t be pursuing this fight so vigorously otherwise.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Calls Out Manny Pacquiao to Fight May 5th

It’s funny how Floyd Mayweather Jr. can spend so long coming up with excuses not to fight Manny Pacquiao, but now that he’s ready for the bout, he’s going out of his way to make Pac Man look bad.

Floyd issued a call out to Pacquiao over Twitter Tuesday, saying “Manny Pacquiao I’m calling you out let’s fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see.”

Maybe Floyd’s doing that because he really wants the fight, or maybe he’s doing it to change public perception. Remember, Mayweather was the one who was, in the words of Michael Irvin, making brothers look bad with all the ducking. He took his sweet ass time coming out of retirement and he let Manny take many more hits before finally challenging him.

Even if Floyd is just trying to win a PR game at this point, at least he appears to want the fight. Bob Arum on the other hand is coming up with every excuse possible to keep the two from fighting. He has been one of the biggest reasons the fight has not taken place. He may be the reason it does not go down May 5th like it should.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Won $333,333 Betting on Alabama

The oracle that is Floyd Mayweather Jr. added to his fortune by betting $400,000 on Alabama over LSU in the National Championship Game. Floyd’s wager appears to have been made halftime. We also learned that he’s not very good at math.

If you read his tweet, Floyd says he made $400,000 on the game, but that’s not true. He wagered $400,000 and won $333,333. Any experienced bettor knows you don’t wager in round numbers like Floyd because of the juice. Floyd is proving that he just wants to throw pretty numbers at the teller, regardless of what awkward looking figures it yields. But hey, if he’s winning, who can argue?
