Floyd Mayweather Jr. received a $40 million check for Alvarez bout

Snoop won interesting bet on Mayweather-Alvarez fight

Apparently, Snoop Dogg made much more than a friendly wager with a pal — more like a “bud” in light of what was on the line — who goes by the name Lui over the outcome of the big fight last weekend when Floyd Mayweather Jr. squared off against Canelo Alvarez.

Controversial Mayweather-Alvarez judge takes leave of absence

Tweet C.J. Ross has been the subject of much scrutiny lately, and for good reason.

Coincidentally, Ross has […]
