Recently, Mayweather, who opened a skating rink, saw the venue graced by a special guest. The American singer and songwriter Usher visited Mayweather’s skating rink, and the duo had a sublime time together. ‘TBE’ also shared a picture with the entertainment bigwig on his social handle.

“I want to thank @usher and his team for coming by and blessing my skating rink with their presence @skaterockcity”

“On a side note @usher can skate like a motha*****!” he wrote.
