Mayweather May Bet $5M on McGregor Fight, His First Ever Bet on Himself

Floyd Mayweather may not be a betting man when it comes to himself, but there’s a first time for everything. In spite of UFC president Dana White’s insistence that Mayweather bets on himself, people familiar with Mayweather’s betting habits say that Mayweather doesn’t bet on himself, but his friends and entourage do.

That isn’t to say that Mayweather doesn’t bet, mind you. He has a history of posting winning tickets on social media. One such case is a 2015 Warriors-Rockets matchup that he bet $200,000 on, for the Warriors straight up. He also put down $1.1 million on Oregon over Arizona State back in 2012. Last season, Mayweather claimed to strike it rich when he bet on his friend Isaiah Thomas and the Boston Celtics to win.

But Mayweather’s confidence may come to a head with McGregor this Saturday on Showtime PPV beginning at 9 p.m. ET. Reports are now circulating that Mayweather is considering a $5 million bet on himself for Saturday’s fight. Mayweather is currently sitting at -400 odds in the fight, which means if he wins, he’ll walk away with a cool $6.25 million in addition to everything else that’s in his contract.
