Retired boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather, has again put himself in the eye of the media, this time around it is in the line of soccer.
The 41-year-old Mayweather, who continues to tease that, told the Sunday Daily Star in England that he also could be interested in a takeover bid for Newcastle United of the English Premier League.
“I love Newcastle. Those guys like to party as hard as any city I have been to anywhere in the world,” said Mayweather, who in 2017 did a tour of speaking engagements in the United Kingdom. “I met some of the players last year and they are good guys. I am always open to new business opportunities and I love all sports, but I invest with my head, not my heart.”
“Investing with your heart is the quickest way to lose money,” Mayweather said. “But if somebody put together a business plan and my people looked over it and went ‘Floyd, that can make money,’ then I would invest. Soccer might not be my game but I’ve got connections everywhere.
He also showed interest in winning Christiano Ronaldo over. He said,
“Cristiano Ronaldo has been a long-time supporter and buddy of mine, so I might even be able to get him to finish his career off at Newcastle.”
