I tell you this fight is just building and building momentum to the point it could be genuinely be considered the greatest boxing bout of all time.
Aside the fact it’s been years in the making, the MGM Grand sold out minutes after the fight was announced, and then tickets that went on public sale were snapped up after one minute. It doesn’t get any bigger than that.
And the celebrities are also not leaving things lying down, and it’s like everyone is in one corner or the other. And when you’ve got mega rich people in these situations, certainly the betting would flow.
So it was that Diddy laid down the gauntlet to actor Mark Wahlberg over who is winning the fight. Diddy is Mayweather all the way, whilst Wahlberg is the Pacman’s corner.
According to TMZ, the two are betting $250,000 on the outcome of the bout. Diddy initially suggested 100 grand, to which Mark responded “why so little?”
So $250,000 it is. Of course, 50 Cent has also bet on this bout. The rapper put $1.6m on Money winning this fight.
We’re now a week away- things are heating up.
