Jan. 27 (UPI) -- 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.

Earlier this year, the champ won more than $50,000 when No. 11 Oklahoma knocked off No. 3 Alabama 45-31 in the Sugar Bowl.

He also won a good chunk of cash when Michigan State beat Stanford in the Rose Bowl, although he may never have even stepped in a casino to place the wager.

It’s unclear if he used a “runner” to place the alleged Super Bowl bets, but if he did, it probably wasn’t this guy:
