Flyod Mayweather to visit ‘motherland’ Ghana next week

Floyd Mayweather’s illustrious career in the ring was laid bare on Thursday when he showed off 19 of his world championship belts ahead of a trip to Ghana.

The 40-year-old won his first world title when he captured the WBC super featherweight strap with victory over Genaro Hernandez in 1998.

During an incredible unbeaten career that spanned 19 years, ‘Money’ went on to win world titles in four more divisions – lightweight, super lightweight, welterweight and super welterweight.

P-REALA, who is part of Mayweather’s Money Team and CEO of his record label Philthy Rich Records, posted a video on Instagram showing Mayweather’s incredible collection of titles.

‘Arguing with the champ @floydmayweather about the NBA Finals and he shows me this… I guess that was the end of the convo,’ read the caption.

Mayweather has not fought since beating compatriot Andre Berto in September 2015, a win which extended his perfect record to 49-0.

Talk of the 40-year-old returning to the ring to face UFC star Conor McGregor in a money-spinning cross-over bout has been rumbling on for months.

For now, however, ‘Money’ looks set to be back on the road in the coming days. Mayweather recently spent time travelling around Europe following Gervonta Davis’ victory over Liam Walsh last month.

And in a video on Instagram, the former five-weight king announced that he will be visiting Ghana in Africa alongside members of his Money Team next week.

‘Africa, Ghana, your man Floyd Mayweather and The Money Team, June 15 and June 16, the motherland,’ the 40-year-old said in the video.
