Floyd Mayweather camp refutes report that 'Money' will pay $10 million bail for jailed rap mogul Suge Knight

It's good to have old friends in rich places, but giving up that amount of coin isn't the easiest thing to do; regardless of how stuffed your piggy bank is.

When Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao steps into the ring this Saturday night (May 2, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, no one will be cheering harder for "Money" to come out victorious than Marion "Suge" Knight.

In fact, he'll be "praying" his pal comes out on top.

That's because, according to L.A. Times, Mayweather is set to post the massive $10 million bail for Knight to be released from jail.

Or is he?

Despite numerous reports stating as much, a member of "The Money Team" revealed to TMZ that Floyd would not be dishing out the cold, hard cash to bust his buddy out of the clink.

The rap mogul was arrested and charged with murder and attempted murder after he used his truck to plow over two men during a heated exchange. The incident, which occurred on the set of the upcoming film "Straight Outta Compton," left one man dead and the other suffering major bodily damage.

See the disturbing and graphic footage below (viewer discretion is advised):

Knight is currently in custody in Los Angeles, Calif., where he will remain until his trial gets underway on July 7, 2015. Of course, he could have gotten out much sooner, if Mayweather had indeed agreed to post his massive bail.

Mayweather is guaranteed to earn $180 million for the fight, so it wouldn't be a big deal for him to cough up the dough to help a friend in need. Then again, $10 million is $10 million, regardless of how rich filthy rich you are.
