Floyd Mayweather's massage therapist says he didn't bet $10.4 million on Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII

Contrary to earlier reports/rumors/chit-chat/whatever, Floyd Mayweather's massage therapist -- yes -- says he didn't bet any $10.4 million on the Broncos.

Floyd Mayweather loves to gamble with money on sporting events, and often in large sums! However, it appears yesterday's internet nonsense -- which we specialize in! -- about Mayweather betting $10.4 million on the Denver Broncos to cover a -2 spread against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII isn't true.

The source, via FightHype, is Mayweather's massage therapist. Because of course it is. Why wouldn't it be?

"No, that's not true at all," he told FightHype. Mayweather, who was "unavailable for immediate comment," could reportedly be heard in the background yelling about how if it doesn't come from himself, Leonard Ellerbe, or Al Haymon (who never speaks to the media), it's not true.

100% false! It JUST ISN'T TRUE, folks.

Man, thank goodness we have this cleared up. Now we can all go on about our lives, or at least some of us can. Personally, I plan to stay on top of Mayweather's gambling habits. As soon as he tweets his stub, I'M ON IT. That's a guarantee.*

* Guarantee not guaranteed. I might be doing something else.
