Floyd Mayweather insisted he will be holding court in his strip club the night before he meets Conor McGregor in what is shaping up to be the first billion-dollar boxing match.
So believed Mr Money when he said that this collision with The Notorious superstar of the UFC would be his last fight before he goes into promoting full-time.
Especially when he is spending big fight week on the Las Vegas Strip advertising his Girl Collection lap-dancing emporium as heavily as he was marketing Saturday night’s cross-over punch-up with McGregor.
Money and Mac both believed they will knock out the rival in the ring who is also his partner in what the Irishman openly described as ‘a business.’
Well he might, since McGregor’s purse for a maximum 36 minutes of action could rise above a hundred million dollars, Mayweather’s close to three hundred million.
Not only that, but this non-title bout is on course to obliterate boxing’s records for indoor gate receipts, pay-per-view sales and betting revenue both sides of the Atlantic.
With the money for this brilliantly contrived spectacle on the way to the bank, Mayweather is finding time for his latest enterprise.
