Floyd Mayweather must dread the days leading up to his kids’ birthdays. The WBC welterweight champion has an endless pot of money and his children, we presume, must have everything they could possibly wish for already.
Everything, that is, except for US rappers Tyga and Soulja Boy performing at their birthday parties.
Yes, Floyd splashed the cash to secure the services of the hip-hop artists for his son Zion’s recent birthday party - and then, in typically modest fashion, bragged about it by posting a photograph of the four of them together on Instagram.
“I’ve worked hard to be able to give my children what they wish for & deserve,” Floyd, boxing’s pound-for-pound king, wrote. “My son @zion_mayweather wanted Tyga & Soulja Boy to perform for his birthday party so I made it happen for him & his guests to enjoy it at the house.”
What a cool dad! Floyd may have turned 37 in Febriary, but he proves here that he’s still down with the kids.
Mayweather is currently preparing for his May 3 bout against Argentina’s Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and often posts videos on his Instagram account of his relentless training exercises, but this shows that he’s not all work and no play.
Floyd knows how to let his hair down and enjoy the timeless hits of Tyga and Soulja Boy just like the rest of us mere mortals.
