Floyd Mayweather Jnr's is nicknamed 'Money", and with bets like the one he's put on the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XLVIII this weekend, it's little wonder.

According to the Vegas Gambling Steam the boxing superstar has wagered an eye-watering $10.4million on the Broncos to overcome the Seattle Seahawks by two points or more in Sunday's spectacle.

Other reports claim Mayweather, who is set to return to the ring against Amir Khan in Las Vegas on May 3, has also bet close to $2.96m on Peyton Manning's Broncos to be leading at half-time.

Mayweather's bet is so large that it has been claimed the pound-for-pound king has used seven different agencies and four offshore accounts to make it all possible.
