Mayweather bets US$10M on Denver Superbowl victory

Reports from the US gambling haven of Las Vegas suggest that boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather has placed 10 million dollars on a Denver Broncos victory in the upcoming Superbowl.

The bet came to light through Twitter account Vegas Gambling Steam, which also gave details on Mayweather's support for Peyton Manning and the Broncos to overcome the Seattle Seahawks.

"Floyd Mayweather L48hours bet 10.4Million on Broncos -2 (Action with 7 different shops + 4 offshore accts) 8Million in credit", the account detailed in a tweet that quickly went viral, explaining that the boxer had to spread his money around several outlets as no single bookmakers would take such a large sum.

The WBC Super-welterweight champion is known for his extravagant wagers, and often poses alongside the money he plans to bet on sports including NFL, NBA and NCAA events.

In 2013 Mayweather placed 6 million dollars on the Miami Heat to overcome the Indiana Pacers in the NBA semi-finals. The Heat's victory left the pugilist with winnings of 11m dollars.
