Floyd Mayweather is returning to the boxing ring in 30 days, and when he does, there will be a few hundred special guests in attendance … and we’re not talking about the celebs that typically fill the stands when TBE fights!
They’ll be there, too (more on that later) … but even better, we’re told Floyd wanted to do something nice, so he linked up with two of his business partners/friends, and they’re bringing kids from the inner city to the fight.
“I have teamed up with Robert Smith and Deon Taylor with a charitable initiative attached to my upcoming fight. We are going to be hosting several hundred underprivileged kids from the inner city to come to my fight and we will have a day of fun with them and a private dinner with them during the fight week,” Mayweather tells us.
FYI, Smith, a billionaire, has donated many millions of dollars to different causes, including civil rights, over the years.
Everyone else will have to pay for tickets, which went on sale yesterday and have been selling fast, according to our sources.
The June 11 scrap between Floyd and John Gotti III, the grandson of legendary mobster John Gotti, is different than a typical Mayweather fight … it’s also a top-notch concert, featuring Puerto Rican rapper Lunay and others.
We recently spoke to Lunay … and asked him about being part of the big event.
We’re told Ozuna, a longtime supporter of Money, AND Bad Bunny will also be in the building.
“I’m happy to come and support my brother Floyd Mayweather. We have been friends for many years. He is the G.O.A.T.,” Ozuna tells TMZ Sports.
As for other celebs who will be in the house, we’re told a bunch of star athletes will also be in the building.
Mayweather vs. Gotti III goes down next month at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, FL! 👊
