Mayweather can never separate himself from boxing as the sport has given him immense accolades. That said, while promoting a brand, Mayweather ensured that he factored his passion for boxing into the video.

Earlier this year, ‘TBE’ came to the big stage to take on Logan Paul in an exhibition bout. Despite being dwarfed by Paul, the 44-year-old held his own and traded blows with ‘The Maverick’ for 24 minutes. On top of that, the boxing legend banked around $100 million for his efforts.
