World boxing champion Floyd Mayweather's nickname is 'Money' and, with bets like the one he's put on the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl, it's no wonder.

Mayweather, a prolific gambler, has reportedly wagered almost $15m on the Broncos to win in American football's biggest game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Vegas Gambling Steam Twitter feed revealed Mayweather had slapped the monumental $11.86m wager on the Broncos to beat the Seattle Seahawks by more than two points. Other reports have Mayweather betting $2.96m on the Broncos to be leading at half-time.

As no company would be stupid enough to take the bets on their own, Mayweather reportedly used seven different agencies and four offshore accounts to place his bets.
