Floyd Mayweather Wins Huge Money After Placing Bet On Vasyl Lomachenko Vs. Teofimo Lopez

Floyd Mayweather won a huge bet after placing $6,500 on Teofimo Lopez to upset Vasyl Lomachenko in their lightweight clash.


Lopez scored a shock win over Lomachenko as he earned a points victory to become undisputed world lightweight champion.

The IBF belt holder bagged the WBA (super), WBO and WBC 'franchise' world titles in Las Vegas on Saturday.


And his superb win saw Mayweather pocket over $20,000 after placing $6,500 on 'The Takeover'.

Mayweather took to social media to show off his winning bet.

He posted an image of his slip accompanied with the caption: "A light win."


Lopez, meanwhile, improves his professional record to 16-0 and remains undefeated after claiming a big scalp.

And speaking after beating Lomachenko, he said: "I had to dig deep. I'm thankful, I'm grateful, and each and every day I take that in,"

The young American added: "I had to dig in there, and it feels good.


"I knew (Lomachenko) was coming. I can't give him that. I don't know if (the judges have) got him up on the score cards or not. I come to fight, and I come to win.

"You just gotta keep pressuring him, putting the gas on him. Stick the jab, don't give him that opportunity to set up.

"Every time he wanted to throw, I had at least something for him coming back."

Lopez, who also holds The Ring belt, is eyeing a showdown against 'regular' WBC champion Devin Haney who reacted to his rival's victory.


On Twitter, he wrote: "Lopez vs Haney 2021. Let's do It!"

Haney's promoter Eddie Hearn also weighed in on social media.

"Just spoke to @Realdevinhaney - Yes please! First he must take care of business v Gamboa in 3 weeks!" He said.
