Mayweather v. McGregor. The Maloof Bros. An $880K bet. And a potion that is supposed to cure hangovers. Seriously,
“We were flooded with McGregor money so I was more than happy to take the bet,” South Point sports book director Chris Andrews said Saturday. “We still need Mayweather.”
“We went and sat down with (South Point owner) Michael Gaughan and made the bet. But we came back and thought to ourselves, ‘The money is nice but it can do so much good for so many other people so why don’t we take all the winnings and donate it to charity,’ ” he said. “If he wins, we’ll donate the $160,000 to charities in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, where our sister Adrienne lives.
“It will be a nice gesture for the community and get everybody rooting for Floyd, who’s a hometown kid.”
