Boxer Floyd Mayweather made it very clear how much he values Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel – the Heisman winner is worth about $200,000.

That’s what "Money" won off Manziel's performance when the mercurial QB led his Aggies to a 32-6 halftime lead over Southern Methodist. Mayweather ended up nearly doubling his money (making $200K off a $220K bet) and Texas A&M went on to win a 42-13 rout.

And then he let Manziel know about it with a trolling tweet about Manziel’s inability to get paid for his efforts.

A couple hundred grand is chump change for a guy who just made more than $41 million to fight and beat Canelo Alvarez last weekend, but it was still a slight punch in the gut to Manziel and the other Texas A&M players who worked hard to make Mayweather his money and who'll probably be eating pizza instead of caviar tonight.

The bet itself wasn't exactly unusual for Mayweather, who occasionally posts winning betting stubs on his Instagram account. Trolling the people who help him win the bet, however, may be a first.
