Before Dmitry Bivol beat Canelo Alvarez on Saturday night, the last fighter to score a win over the Mexican superstar was Floyd Mayweather, way back in 2013, when a 22-year-old Canelo was beaten by Mayweather, then the reigning pound-for-pound king.

A $10,000 bet for a guy like Mayweather isn’t actually that big a bet — he’s definitely posted bigger ones in the past — but I don’t know anyone who’s going to say no to winning $42,500, while calling it an “easy pick up.”
Perhaps the most entertaining thing on the post, however, is Adrien Broner replying, “Lol you won some money too I guess we just know boxing …. Good shit big bra”
