Floyd Mayweather Jr. Thrilled By Warm Welcome From Filipinos
FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. – Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. said the Philippines is his ‘adoptive home.’
American boxing promoter and former professional fighter Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. presently owns The Money Team Racing, a NASCAR Cup Series team. He competed as a professional boxer between 1996 and 2017.
He ended his boxing career with an undefeated record and 15 major world titles ranging from super featherweight to light middleweight. After defeating McGregor in his final match, he retired in 2017 with a perfect 50-0 record.
In the most recent of Floyd Mayweather’s lucrative string of post-retirement exhibitions, Mayweather defeated Japanese mixed martial artist Mikuru Asakura on Sunday. Manny Pacquaio, a previous opponent at welterweight, watched at ringside.
After his fight against Asakura, the retired billionaire boxer took the side trip to Manila for a business trip that has nothing much to do with a dream rematch against Pacman.
Based on a report from GMA, Mayweather had a business deal with the beauty and health brand Frontrow. He led the inauguration of the Frontrow’s newest building on Quezon Avenue, Quezon City yesterday, September 28.
According to the report, Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. met the media in a presscon prepared for him. He called the Philippines his ‘adoptive home.’
“I feel like that the Philippines is my adoptive home. When I come here, you guys embrace me with open arms and treat me so well, it is so nice.”
The 45-year-old American boxer also mentioned meeting Pacman in Japan. He said, “Just the other day, I was in Tokyo competing in another boxing exhibition. It was great to see the eight-division world champion, Manny Pacquiao. He’s such a great guy, such a great champion. He represents the Filipinos, the Filipino culture like no other. So I have to take my hand out to Manny Pacquiao, great guy, unbelievable athlete.”
When asked if there would be a chance for him and Pacman to be fighting in the ring again, Floyd immediately answered, “Absolutely not.”
