Floyd Mayweather, and his team (the money team) were in South Africa to revive the sport of boxing and encourage young South African boxers, I hope the sport and our country has benefited.
My boyfriend and I were able to attend the press conference, as well as the gala dinner and auction. The press conference was held at Olympic House, and the Minister of Sport and the SASCOC president were in attendance.
Below are some photos from the press conference.
Miss Doralie Medina, Floyd’s massage therapist looking stunning at the press conference!
On Friday night my boyfriend and I were lucky enough to attend the Floyd Mayweather Gala Dinner and Auction at Emperor’s Palace.
It is always fun to dress up formally, black tie and all that!
The event was attended by local celebrities, and of course the rich people (for the auction)… More on this later… And a performance by Judith Sephuma.
The cute center pieces at the event!
The starter! It was really yummy, it was the only food that was nice, the mains and dessert weren’t great at all!
Floyd Mayweather signing money… Haha!
Miss Medina again!
