Floyd Mayweather is still raking in money despite not throwing a punch after he won a bet with NFL club Green Bay Packers, The Sun.

The retired undefeated boxing champion won a £150,000 bet with a profit of £126,000 after the Packers defeat the San Francisco 49ers in a football game.

Mayweather watched the match at a pool party with waitresses dressed in bikini outfits at the Circa in Las Vegas.

While drinks were served in the pool party, Mayweather focused on the prize as his gamble paid off after the Packers won the 79ers by 34-17.

After the game, the 43-year-old filmed himself in a red Chevrolet Super Sport with his cash winnings laid out on the passenger's seat and was wearing a diamond-encrusted necklace.

Mayweather's last professional fight was against UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017 and fought in an exhibition bout against featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan a year later.

He still holds the undefeated 50-0 record but has ruled out coming out of retirement to face another boxer.

However, the billionaire sportsman is willing to get back into the ring in an exhibition fight or battle with an MMA fighter.

Mayweather told CNN:

"As of right now, I'm doing exhibitions. I'm 100 per cent sure that I'm not fighting against any boxer anymore.
"So, that's out of the question. I mean, just my faculties mean a lot to me.
"Money don't make me, I make money and my health is more important than money.
