Former England International Explains How He Ended Up Partying At Floyd Mayweather's $9.5 Million Mansion

Former England International Explains How He Ended Up Partying At Floyd Mayweather's $9.5 Million Mansion

Former England midfielder Kieron Dyer has told the fascinating story of how he ended up partying at boxing legend Floyd Mayweather's mansion.

Dyer had flown out to Las Vegas back in 2012 to watch Mayweather defeat Miguel Cotto to take his record to 43-0.

Little did the former Newcastle United man know that he'd end up at Mayweather's $9.5 million mansion after the fight - all thanks to rapper 50 Cent.

"In the Cotto fight, there was this guy we knew who is really close to Carlton Cole, he used to be a DJ for 50 Cent," the 41-year-old told the Golf Life podcast.

"Obviously 50 Cent and Floyd used to be best mates. After the fight, he rings me up and asks what I'm doing.

"I say I'm probably going to go to one of the big clubs in Vegas but he wants me to meet him, everyone is going back to the champs, everyone is going back to Floyd's.

"I met him, and turned up at Floyd's house. Must have been about 200 people in the house.

"He had all his belts on the table, there was hardly any sight of him.

"There were women everywhere. I was walking around Floyd's house, it was very surreal."

It's easy to see why the undefeated boxer earned the nickname of 'Money'.

Mayweather has gone on to purchase another mansion in Las Vegas which is worth around $10 million.

The 43-year-old retired after defeating Conor McGregor back in 2017 but returned the following year for an exhibition bout with Tenshin Nasukawa.

According to eFight, Japanese MMA promotion RIZIN is working on plans to bring the future boxing Hall of Famer back to the Far East to face former super-featherweight champ Takashi Uchiyama.

Uchiyama, who is being lined up as a potential opponent for Mayweather, retired from boxing in 2016 after back-to-back defeats to Jezreel Corrales.

However, the 40-year-old Japanese former boxer was widely praised for his knockout power and won 20 of his 27 professional fights by KO.

Promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara believes there are still hurdles that they need to overcome for Mayweather vs Uchiyama.

But the 56-year-old Japanese businessman has admitted that "communication with the person is progressing positively."

Sakakibara explained: "Mayweather vs Takashi Uchiyama is the most exciting. There are various problems such as immigration, opponents, money, etc.

"But communication with the person is progressing positively. I expect the possibility."
