Floyd Mayweather’s whereabouts have become somewhat of a mystery over the past few days. Earlier this month, Gervonta Davis alleged the five division champion was stuck in Dubai because of some unpaid dues. Something controversial boxing matchmaker Rick Glaser had confirmed, but the narrative has taken a sharp turn, as new information about Floyd Mayweather has made it on the internet.

A while back, record executive and businessman Wack 100 appeared in the Hollywood Unlocked podcast alongside Jason Lee, where the reality of Mayweather’s whereabouts became a topic of discussion. The unfolding events that followed flung wide open the Mayweather saga, debunking claims from Davis and others who asserted Mayweather’s confinement in Dubai.

Talking about one of his clients, Wack 100 brought up all the headlines suggesting Mayweather was stuck in Dubai. But in reality, the record executive said, “Me and Floyd were in his penthouse on Wilshire at the top meeting. And I’m like, ‘bro, what are they talking about?’ He said, ‘I guess I’m stuck in Dubai.’”

Amidst the swirling rumors, Mayweather’s absence in Mexico for his exhibition rematch with Victor Ortiz added another layer of intrigue. The cancellation of the event coupled with allegations of a $1 million scam involving Mayweather further fueled the controversy. However, even the host of the show, Jason Lee, suggested he had spoken to Mayweather during this time and nothing seemed out of the ordinary!

Wack 100 jumped as he asserted that he also tried to check up on Floyd because of the rumors, to which the five division champion laughed. Nevertheless, the record executive asked the host, “You know why he was in Dubai?” In response, Lee answered, “The gold deal.” Giving a seal of approval, Wack 100 elaborated, “He did a gold mine. He bought into a gold mine.”

However, it’s worth mentioning that even these claims are hearsay, and nothing has been proven quite yet. Neither has Floyd Mayweather confirmed the existence of such a deal in Dubai, but his appearance in Las Vegas amid the rumors suggests the ‘stuck in Dubai’ angle might not be completely true.

After Davis’ assertion and Glaser’s support for the said assertions, Mayweather appeared in LA for the Clippers vs. Mavericks in the NBA playoffs. Not just that, ‘Money’ Mayweather seems to have donated $30,000 to a group of homeless men in downtown LA after the game. However, Mayweather debunked the ‘Stuck in Dubai’ story properly through an Instagram story.

A few days ago, ‘Pretty Boy’ hopped on the platform to share an image of himself in Dubai with the caption that read, “BREAKING NEWS FLOYD MAYWEATHER STUCK IN DUBAI.” It was, of course, meant to be a playful jab at his former starfighter Gervonta Davis, who had started the rumors of his confinement in Dubai. 

In a nutshell, with everything that has come to light in the past few weeks, it seems like Mayweather might not be stuck in the oil rich country. In addition, the statements from Jason Lee and Wack 100 prove the multi millionaire boxer is well and free. What are your thoughts about the whole situation?
