Floyd Mayweather Jr – ‘The Heist’ exhibition tour – “5 countries in 9 months”
By Allan Fox: Floyd Mayweather Jr revealed today that he’s about to embark on ‘The Heist’ exhibition tour, traveling to five countries in the next nine months in 2023, with his money beinng “guaranteed.”
It’s unknown who is behind the funding of the 46-year Mayweather’s ‘Heist” tour, but it could be a substantial financial loss if the fans fail to turn out, as we saw with Floyd’s last exhibition on February 25th against social media personality Aaron Chalmers at the O2 Arena in London.
Referring to himself as “The most active hustler in boxing,” Mayweather reveals he’s getting paid even if the exhibition fights don’t happen.
This suggests that some of these five-fight exhibition matches for Mayweather might be canceled if the tickets fail to sell. That makes sense because why rent out a venue if the tickets aren’t selling? That would be a disaster for the organizer of Mayweather’s five-country exhibition tour.
As it is now, Mayweather is visiting these countries for his five-country, nine-month ‘The Heist’ exhibition tour:
I hate to drizzle on Mayweather’s parade, but you arguably got to put a question mark next to all of those countries in his ‘Heist’ exhibition tour because if the tickets aren’t selling, it’s reasonable to assume that the event for those countries will be canceled well in advance.
The only chance Mayweather has of selling out whatever venue the organizer of the tour books is if he fights a notable opponent that the boxing fans want to see him fight.
Influencer AnEsonGib is rumored to be Mayweather’s next opponent, which, if true, means the exhibition tour will start in the U.S. because that match-up wouldn’t sell in the other four countries.
It’s doubtful that Mayweather vs. AnEsonGib would sell in the U.S., for that matter, but it’s at least got a better chance of selling than if the exhibition was staged in Japan, South Korea, or Australia.
If Mayweather’s ‘Heist’ exhibition tour bombs badly in each country, this could be the end of him peddling these dreadful farces to the public.
Floyd needs to smell the coffee, go off into retirement, and enjoy the loot he made from his heists.
Many boxing fans are hoping for that because Floyd is now part of a different generation, one in which fans were more willing to throw away their money to watch unentertaining fighters.
Nowadays, fans want value for their money, not garbage fights where they already know who the winner will be.
This generation’s fans don’t want to waste their hard-earned money to watch fights that guarantee to leave them dissatisfied at the end, as we’ve seen with Mayweather’s exhibition and his biggest fights against Conor McGregor, Manny Pacquiao, and Canelo Alvarez.
