Diddy, Mark Wahlberg bet $250,000 on Mayweather vs. Pacquiao
As celebrities begin choosing sides for the May 2 fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, Diddy and Mark Wahlberg have decided to bet $250,000 on the outcome.
In a commercial for Aqua Hydrate water, Diddy once again repped Team Mayweather while Wahlberg went for Pacquiao. Both previously shared their picks in a YouTube clip published by HBO this week, but this is the first we've seen of some money being put up for the fight.
Diddy only wanted to start at $100,000, but after a "Why so low?" from Wahlberg, he quickly jumped to $250,000. That's some hasty financial decision making from Diddy...but something tells us he'll be OK in the end.
Mayweather has been listed as a -210 favorite by online sportsbook Bovada, but Pacquiao certainly has a list of supporters that doesn't end with Wahlberg.
