If the reports that are coming from Twitter are true, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is certainly living up to his "Money” nickname.
In addition to being known for his undefeated record in boxing, Mayweather is a notorious gambler and has reportedly already bet $10 million on the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl.
