Mayweather’s crazy walkouts
Remember that scene in Rocky where Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) enters the boxing stadium dressed as George Washington while throwing money into the crowd? Well, Floyd Mayweather has never donned a white wig while heading to the ring, but his walkouts are often just as wild.
When he went up against Manny Pacquiao in 2015, Mayweather was escorted into the arena by Justin Bieber and the Burger King mascot. And that wasn’t even the first time the Biebs had walked out with Mayweather. In 2014, when Floyd faced off against Marcos Maidana, the Canadian pop star joined Mayweather’s entourage alongside Lil Wayne, but you might not have noticed them because the procession was headed by a full-fledged circus complete with clowns and jugglers.
Mayweather also has a thing for chariots. He rode up to the ring in 2005 to the tune of “Another One Bites the Dust.” He pulled the same gimmick in 2006, only this time he was decked out as a gladiator, complete with pink boxing gloves. Perhaps his most infamous stunt came in 2007. Before his fight with Oscar De La Hoya, Mayweather showed up wearing a sombrero and a red, white, and green outfit resembling the Mexican flag. Needless to say, this upset a lot of people, but hey, if nothing else, you’ve got to admit that Floyd Mayweather knows how to make an entrance.
