Prison isn't really the ideal place to make money, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. likes to make money.
He was in the top 50 of the highest-paid athletes of 2012, chosen by Forbes (he has earned more than $200 mil) — and he wanted it to stay that way, so he placed a crazy bet on the Dallas Cowboys season opener.
More specifically, he put $200,000 on them to win in the second half… and that's exactly what happened.
He tweeted this, and the picture (above):
Good call, Floyd!
Oh and that rumor he mentions?
People think he dropped $3 million on the Michigan V Alabama game last weekend and lost.
With making over $200 mil, that seems like nothin' to him — though, it would've been something to a school somewhere!
Oh and btw — he put $100k on Cincinnati. Check that ticket (below).
