Recently, ‘TBE’ took it to his Instagram handle to spill the beans on a Ferrari giveaway contest. Here, he kind of stole the former WWE star, Bret Hart’s line, ‘The Best There Is, the Best There Was, the Best There Ever Will Be.’

In this video, Mayweather said, “Let me get this right. You want to ride like Floyd? You have to win like Floyd. I’m a perfect 50-0, undefeated. The greatest there was the greatest there will ever be.”

“Greatness respects greatness. That’s why I’m teaming up with BetOnline.AG giving you a chance to be great. And win one of my Ferraris. That’s right, I’m challenging you to a perfect 50-0 record like mine. BetOnline.AG. The NBA has started whoever match my record there is riding away in style.”

Mayweather, due to his gigantic fan base, gets a string of brands to promote through his social handles. Also, umpteen conglomerates look to tie up with Mayweather, as he seems a perfect fit to send the brand message loud and clear.

‘Pretty Boy’ is a smart businessman, and he rightly knows how to channelize the brand message and sell off anything needed.

After his fight with Zab Judah, Mayweather parted ways with his then promoter by paying a hefty amount of $750,000. He took this step to become his own promoter and sell his fights in the biggest possible way.
