Now, this is a bet.

Friends and business investors in the AQUAhydrate water, Diddy and Mark Wahlberg, have quite the wager going for this weekend's long awaited Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight. $250,000 to be exact.

Sitting poolside at an undisclosed location and drinking their water, Diddy and Wahlberg get into a conversation about who's going to win the mega bout this Saturday night.

"I got Mayweather. I'm going with the Money Team, baby. Who you got?" Diddy says, as seen on his Instagram account.

"Pacman," Wahlberg responds.

"Put $100,000 on it?" Diddy asks.

"Ooh, why so little?" Wahlberg retorts.

The two settle on $250,000 and Wahlberg points to Diddy's rock of an earring saying, "I want that diamond right there."


A quarter-million on the fight. If the winning amount gets reinvested in AQUAhydrate, they both win.
