He’s an American, but Floyd Mayweather Jr. chose to wear a Philippines-inspired shirt during only media day before fight week Wednesday morning (Manila time).

The shirt’s design had an image of Mayweather himself covered in the Philippine flag’s colors with an enlarged yellow sun at the back of his head.

“”I love the Philippines. I love all the Philippine fans,” Mayweather said in an interview with GMA News.
