Mayweather to wear $25k mouthguard for Pacquiao fight
MANILA, Philippines – Floyd Mayweather Jr is living up to his “Money” persona once again as he will wear a $25,000-worth mouthguard for his much-anticipated bout against Manny Pacquiao on May 2 (May 3 in PH).
According to a report by entertainment news outlet TMZ, the unbeaten American boxer tapped Dr. Lee Gause to do a custom-made mouthpiece that has gold flakes, diamonds and real $100 bills inside it.
“My career's gone on 19 years and I've been able to preserve my smile," Mayweather quipped.
Gause, a dentist based in Manhattan, New York and owner of the Iceberg Guard performance mouth-wear line, has a long list of clients in professional sports, including former welterweight champion Andre Berto, NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire and retired NFL linebacker Christopher Borland.
Aside from Gause, Mayweather acquired the services of Chef Q to prepare his meals as he trains for his heavily-hyped showdown with Pacquiao at the 16,800-seater MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mayweather reportedly assigned the expensive cook to handle all his meals that cost $1,000 per plate. – Rappler.com
