Easy bucks for the “Money.”
Floyd Mayweather lived up to one of his monikers when he showed his $20,000 bet earnings after Teofimo Lopez defeated Vasyl Lomachenko Saturday (Sunday, Manila time).
Unbeaten Lopez showed who’s boss in Las Vegas after upsetting Lomachenko in a unanimous decision win to become the undisputed world lightweight champion.
Mayweather, who vouched for Lopez, was quick to boast his bet winnings as he posted a photo on Instagram his bet slip.
From $6,500, the retired champion won $20,150 (approximately P980,700), cashing in a total of $26,650.
“A light win,” the 43-year-old Mayweather wrote.
Lopez, meanwhile, received praise from boxing greats in Manny Pacquiao and Mike Tyson on social media.
“Congratulations to @TeofimoLopez for an undisputed great performance,” Pacquiao tweeted.
Tyson, for his part, described Lopez as the “man to beat.”
“Brooklyn was definitely in the house tonight. Lopez is the man to beat. Another Brooklyn champion,” he tweeted.
The recent win made the 23-year-old Lopez, who holds a 16-0 record with 12 knockouts, the only four-belt champion in lightweight history, and the youngest in all boxing accounts.
