Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. eats street food and shoots hoops as he visits Sampaloc, Manila

MANILA, Philippines – Floyd Mayweather Jr. seemed to have enjoyed his time in the Philippines.

The retired boxing champion got to experience street-style party as he visited Sampaloc, Manila together with businessman and Congressman Sam Verzosa.

Versoza is the chief executive officer and president of multi-level marketing company Frontrow, which tapped Mayweather as an endorser in 2019.

“Filipino people showing me love,” said Mayweather, who spent a week in the country.

The 45-year-old American ate street food and shot hoops as he indulged Manileños who tried to catch a glimpse of the undefeated boxer, who ended his professional career with a 50-0 record.

According to Verzosa, Mayweather had a great time.

“He said this is his best experience in the Philippines and in Asia by far,” Versoza wrote on Instagram.

Mayweather is coming off an exhibition fight in Japan in September, stopping Japanese mixed martial artist Mikuru Asakura in a second-round win.

He will star in another exhibition bout when he tangles with YouTuber Deji Olatunji in November. – Rappler.com
