Until Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao actually do what needs to be done and sign the necessary paperwork to get into the ring with one another, it’s our responsibility to lump them together whenever possible. We can compare them on fan adoration, pay-per-view (PPV) success, annoying family members, annoying promoters, prison time, jail cell size and so on and so forth.
We just have to.
On Wednesday, Mayweather tweeted some gambling receipts as a way to showcase what a Rain Man he is when it comes to wagering large sums of money on sporting events. As a result, we gave him his due kudos and dubbed him a better gambler than his Filipino counterpart. On Thursday, the undefeated champ opted to step the competition up a bit by tweeting photos of his new toy – a shiny, run-of-the-mill Bentley.
As a result of this latest splurge, Mayweather had to accept a second job as a waiter.
Just joking, Floyd. Pretend we’re Manny Pacquiao and don’t try to fight us.
