Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are not the only ones walking away richer on May 2, their celerity friends will go home with fuller pockets.
Take for example Diddy and Mark Wahlberg.
Diddy, a multi-awarded hiphop artist, and Wahlberg, a multi-awarded actor, each bet $250,000 on the mega fight between this era’s best pound-for-pound boxers.
Wahlberg got Pacquiao while Diddy chose Mayweather in the WBO, WBC, WBA welterweight unification match at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Showtime Sports posted a video where the two were having a friendly chat and Diddy started the betting at $100,000 but Wahlberg wanted more and made it $250,000.
Wahlberg really wanted more because he also wants the big diamond ring Diddy was wearing in the video.
