A degenerate gamester, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) needs the Heat to trump Indiana by more than seven points to win.
Projected to make $90 million in 2013, Mayweather was ranked the highest-earning American athlete for the second consecutive year by Sports Illustrated last month.
Set for Mexican Independence Day weekend, Mayweather is expected to net roughly $50 million to battle the 22-year-old Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs).
Regardless how wealthy, it’s abnormal for an individual to wager nearly $6 million on a single contest.
As great as the reigning pound-for-pound king is inside the squared circle, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is equally troubled outside of it.by
