Clearly, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a Johnny Football fan.

The champ already claims to have won $200,000 in Texas A&M's victory vs. Southern Methodist last week:

And now the champ says he'll drop another sizable bet on the Aggies and their controversial QB — $300,000 this time.

Mayweather was hyping Texas A&M — or, more specifically, Johnny Manziel — on Wednesday when he appeared on Howard Stern's radio show.

While Mayweather denied ever betting $5.9 million on Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals last year between the Heat and the Pacers (as was reported then), he did say he was going to peel off $300K for a bet when Manziel and A&M play Arkansas on Saturday.

“Johnny Football never has an off day,” he said.

Mayweather had all sorts of gems in the interview below (although much of the content is not suitable for all audiences, so be forewarned).

He said he takes his coffee with four sugars, that he’s broken every record in boxing (when asked if he was the greatest ever), and that he carries $10,000 at all times.

"Money" can't seem to stay out of the headlines since his huge victory over Canelo Alvarez, making waves earlier this week by saying he's eyeing Miley Cyrus as his next ring escort.

Mayweather isn't shy about discussing sports betting, but as he told FOX Sports' Peter Schrager, he's not really into offering tips or advice. At least not for free.

Yep! Now THAT'S the Floyd Mayweather we've all come to know and love:
