Mayweather wears Philippine-inspired shirt during media workout
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.
Mayweather hosted his open workout at his gym in Las Vegas that was attended by media outfits from around the world and actor David Hasselhoff.
The training session is Mayweather’s last public appearance as he locks down his gym to keep his focus ahead of his $300 million fight against Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Pacquiao, meanwhile, will hold his media day Thursday (Manila time) in Los Angeles.
