Floyd Mayweather won $827K gambling over the weekend
Monday May 18th, 2015

Floyd Mayweather is pulling in major payday's even when he is not in the ring, as his winning streak apparently continued at the sports book over the weekend.

Mayweather put down big bets on NBA playoff games and Saturday's fight between Gennady Golovkin and Willie Monroe Jr. wagering $350,000 and bringing home $827,272.

The wagers included Golovkin–Monroe going less than six rounds, the Rockets defeating the Clippers in a Game 7 at the Toyota Center and second-half bets on both the Hawks and Rockets.

Even if the massive wagers had gone south, Mayweather would have remained solvent, as his recent mega-fight victory over Manny Pacquiao brought in over four million pay-per-view buys, a new record for the sport.
