Floyd Mayweather wins again? You bet

WORLD champion Floyd Mayweather is almost as well known for his exploits outside the ring as he is inside it, particularly for his love of gambling on sport.

The man they call "Money" has raked in plenty of the folding stuff after a series of successful bets in recent days.

He also jumped on the Atlanta Hawks to beat the Washington Wizards, and Kazakh boxer Gennady Golovkin to stop American challenger Willie Monroe Jnr inside six rounds in their WBA middleweight bout.

"I don't do anything for free. I bet $350,000.00 and walked away with $827,272.73," Mayweather (pictured) tweeted.

The 38-year-old is set to retire from the ring after one final fight in September, and you can bet the house his opponent will not be Golovkin.
