In response to the rumor, Mayweather posted a graphic on Instagram to refute claims that he lost millions Super Sunday:

Congratulations Seattle Seahawks for winning the Super Bowl! For the record, I did NOT bet $10 million on the Broncos. As a matter of fact, I didn’t bet at all. I can’t control what rumors that are put out there. Good or bad publicity keeps me relevant. The only think I would bet $10 million on is MYSELF. From the looks of my record, I’m a guaranteed WIN!!! www.themoneyteam.com

Below is the graphic Mayweather sent out to Instagram and Twitter at the conclusion of Super Bowl XLVIII:

Somebody lied to you all. If I was going to bet, I would have bet on the Seattle Seahawks. I’m the best defensive fighter, it’s only right to go with the best defensive team.

The rumor began earlier in the week with a series of tweets alleging the boxing star was wagering large sums, spread out over different casinos, for the Broncos to win it all.

A photo allegedly showing Mayweather placing one of his large bets was tweeted out days before the Super Bowl, but that photo was published online at least two years earlier.

After the game, a photo collage also circulated, allegedly showing Mayweather’s reaction to losing his rumored bet on the game.
