Boxing has never been mistaken for the cleanest sport, and Floyd has never been short on confidence for himself, but an eerily accurate bet by Floyd has some people thinking the fix was in during the mega fight between Mayweather and McGregor.
There were rumors swirling around before the fight that Floyd wanted to bet as much as $400k on himself to win. Well, he got pretty darn close to that according to what he told ESPN reporter Sal Paolantonio after the fight:
“I think that we bet 100 on 9-1/2. I gave my guy six figures to go bet. I have to make sure he bet because earlier today I went to the sports book to bet and they wouldn’t let me bet.”
