It is not just the Chiefs who won big last night. Boxing’s very own, Floyd Mayweather leveraged the Super Bowl to get richer.

While the country remains hungover from the lethal showdown that went down at the Allegiant Stadium of Las Vegas, Mayweather dropped some major bucks in bets on the Chiefs.

Last night, the big bastions of the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers faced off in a widely celebrated confrontation. For the Chiefs, it remained their fourth seasonal finale in the last five years. For the 49ers, the underdog, it was their golden chance to victory, a proposition that last came true in 1994. Banking on these chances, Mayweather came unabashedly in support of the Chiefs. His incentive? A massive $200,000 profit.

On his Instagram stories, ‘Money’ told the world that his allegiance for last night’s, Super Bowl game, lay with the Chiefs. He did so by dropping about $95,000 on the Chiefs via the Betify betting platform. In return, when the Chiefs dragged their feet beyond the victory line, he earned double his investment, a staggering $200,000.

The bookmaking platform also shared the details of this impressive transaction on its Instagram page. Along with a picture of the boxer and a screengrab of its receipts, the platform’s social media post was captioned, “Little bet from the king, get the money.”

Betify, which notes in its bio, “Betting & Casino Playground chosen by @FloydMayweather” has a flagship partnership with the 50-0 boxer, that dates back to last August when the news of their association was relayed to the world. For multiple, international sporting events, Mayweather has led the way in promoting the platform by encouraging his fanbase to follow his suit and earn big bills.

This year’s Super Bowl has been important for the 46-year-old. Earlier, reports had emerged that he also dropped huge money on luxury accommodation ahead of the national favorite event.

Las Vegas, the pavilion of the Las Vegas Raiders, which for long was dropped as the venue for the Super Bowl given its history for gambling was finally roped in for the iconic night. However, to be a part of the historic night, Mayweather spent $1.3 million for a VIP Suite at the Allegiant Stadium. This year, these luxurious suites were tagged between $1.4 million and $2.5 million. On his Instagram, he shared the image of the fund transfer he made to procure the extravagant suite.

Proud of this spend, in his captions, he explained, ” don’t kiss ass and I never have to beg for nothing especially not to get a Super Bowl suite. I don’t mind accepting invites at times, but one things for sure…The person that’s paying does all the saying. Therefore I get My Own seats and suites so I can do what I want and invite who I want! I’m blessed to be taking 34 people to experience the 1st Super Bowl in Las Vegas!”

The Super Bowl was monumental in every sense, and so was Mayweather’s spending on it.
