Garcia: Mayweather Rejected 'Winner Takes All' Bet

By Edward Chaykovsky

During the first stop of their five city press tour, in New York City, WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. dared Marcos Maidana to "bet his purse" on the outcome of their rematch, scheduled to take place on September 13th at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. Mayweather, who won their May meeting with a twelve round majority decision, feels very confident about his chances to win in the second meeting.

Maidana's trainer, Robert Garcia, upped the stakes by challenging Mayweather to a "winner takes all" side bet. Garcia says Mayweather rejected the bet by refusing to "shake on it" during their press conference in Chicago.

“You are going around telling Chino that you want to place a bet on this fight?  Well, let’s do that bet right now.  You want to put in conditions?  Well, we have our conditions, too. Let’s do a bet where winner takes all.  You have a lot of money.  Winner takes all," Garcia said.

“It looks to me that you are not that sure that you are going to win.  If you were, you would have shaken my hand and agreed to the bet if you were that confident you are going to win.”

Surprised Mayweather didn't accept it... He already knows whatever he does in the ring that he'll get a decision regardless.

I like the 'winner takes all' scenario. At the end of the day even losing $40 Million would not hurt Floyd too much financially. And, after all, he is 'The Best Ever' - so the $40 Million is not really…

[QUOTE=assiong;14767053]Then he shouldn't started his pathetic bet. If he is extremely confident of winning the fight, he should have shakes Garcia's hand for the winner take all bet. Then again it's not a surprise he didn't shake Garcia's hand cause…
