No guts, no glory they say? That is surely the motto for one lucky Irish punter after he placed an astonishing €38k on Floyd Mayweather to beat Manny Pacquiao on Sunday morning.

The punter, from Mayo, won €18k on the winning bet after Mayweather won a cagey bout against Pacquiao  in Las Vegas.

Spokesperson for Boylesports, Liam Glynn, said: "Mayweather v Pacquiao took the nation by storm and our traders have reported the boxing match is by far the biggest turnover to date.

"The Co Mayo punter who places €38k cash on Mayweather certainly got value for money but no doubt had shorter finger nails come the end as he waited 12 rounds to see Mayweather crowned king on points."
