The other side of Floyd Mayweather, which touts him as a business mastermind, didn’t witness its best stint when he tried to promote a rental car agency in Dubai. The undefeated boxer took his time to praise the agency, but netizens did really buy the claims. Although several believers may chime into believing it, many of them ridiculed Mayweather’s latest marketing tactics.

In a recent video, he visited a rental car company named Rotana Star. While taking the office tour, Mayweather filmed himself and also showered the company with appraisals.

‘TBE’ said, “Right now we are in Dubai. Rotana Star the rental car. Best by far. So when you come to Dubai . Rotana star. Look em up right now.”

Several netizens mocked Mayweather for the advertisement. One of them even labeled him “shameless and classless”. Here’s a look at some tweets that completely bashed Floyd Mayweather for the latest promotion.

Owning several private jets and luxury cars, Mayweather doesn’t appear to be the one relying on rental cars on his trips. Hence, it may be just a promotional stunt that didn’t sit well with his followers.

After amassing a 50-0 professional record, Mayweather could have retired happily. However, he kept appearing in exhibition bouts. While a scrap in Japan against Tenshin Nasukawa in 2017 benefited him, Logan Paul offered a harsh reality to Mayweather.

The open weight exhibition bout allowed Paul to enter the ring at a 190 lbs limit while Mayweather was held at a maximum of 160 lbs. Besides, no judges scored the event, and we saw only Knockouts legitimate. As both men failed to stop each other, the fight ended at a draw.
