Norm MacDonald bets $25,000 on Manny Pacquiao
Norm MacDonald showed boxing aficionados that he's not all talk (show).
The host of Comedy Central's, Sports Show with Norm MacDonald,
is not afraid to put his money where his mouth is and proved it during Tuesday night's show.
Showing his confidence in Manny Pacquiao for Saturday's WBO welterweight championship bout against Shane Mosley, MacDonald plunked down $25,000 on the Filipino standout to defeat Mosley.
Proving that he's more than idle chatter, MacDonald produced the betting ticket, made at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas, and flashed it before the cameras.
Pacquiao carries a 13-fight unbeaten streak into the bout and is an overwhelming -800 favorite against Mosley (+500), who has won titles in three weight classes and has never been knocked out in his career.
If Pacquiao wins Saturday, MacDonald will net a mere $3,125 on his wager.
