Former Arsenal player Frimpong celebrates big win on Mayweather

Like many people, former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong made Saturday night's stellar boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao all that more interesting by having a bet.

Frimpong, currently of Russian side FC Ufa, slapped a considerable £50,000 on Mayweather to win, freely admitting on Twitter that he was gambling with his pension money.

This being Frimpong we're talking about, it should come as no surprise to anybody that the 23-year-old live-tweeted the whole thing, running the gamut of emotions as the day unfolded -- beginning by admitting to a bout of prefight butterflies after confirming his massive bet.

Frimpong even shared the details of his bet, noting the hefty return he was sweating on.

Lo and behold, Mayweather did the business out in Las Vegas, leading to wild celebrations somewhere in southwestern Russia.

However, Frimpong didn't neglect to thank the man who won him his £78,600, promising to send Mayweather's mum a lovely bit of cake as a token of his appreciation.

We believe the word you're looking for is "DENCH."
