Floyd Mayweather Jr. has become known for sharing tales of his sports betting exploits as much as he is known for flossing his wealth via social media. But for all the winning tickets he’s shared via Twitter and Instagram, there was always one thing missing: his losing tickets.

Nobody who bets as frequently as Floyd seems to, and on as many random sporting events as he does, wins as often he leads us to believe he does, which is all the time. Nobody wins all the time. If Floyd won all his bets, he’d have no need to continue fighting, but he does. He’s not Biff Tannen here.

So after Floyd denied the “rumor” that he lost millions on Michigan’s season-opening defeat to Alabama, people became outraged and demanded he admit he loses bets. Floyd must have read Hot Clicks who said he was banned for never admitting he loses, because he finally posted a losing bet ticket on Sunday.

Mayweather shared that he lost $100,000 betting on the Lions in the first half of Sunday’s 27-23 win over the Rams. Of course he also shared two tickets showing that he won $350,000, so he still looks like an expert.

I could be wrong, but I’ll go out on a limb and guess that there’s a stack of losing tickets from Sunday that he’s not sharing. But thanks for finally sharing a losing bet Floyd. This isn’t boxing where an undefeated record is easier to maintain.
