Floyd Mayweather stuns UK fans with visit to small shisha lounge in Essex

Floyd Mayweather left locals at a shisha bar in Essex stunned as he paid a surprise visit this week.

Mayweather has been in the UK to speak to a special audience as part of a promotional tour.

Boxing personalities and fans came out for the event, with many paying good money to see him speak about his career and future plans.

But following the event, Mayweather remained in the UK and paid a visit to a small shisha bar in Ilford – with locals capturing the boxing legend on camera.

Mayweather popped into Colony Restaurant which is based on the local high street. It has a rating of 3.7 out of five from nearly 500 reviews on Google.

Fans shared the video of Mayweather's arrival into the venue on their social media, with many in disbelief that one of the all-time pound-for-pound greats was in the restaurant.

One wrote on Twitter: "WTF really?"

While another added: "This makes absolutely no sense. Floyd in ILFORD????"

During his promotional tour, Mayweather addressed his comeback rumours – and claims he is looking to make $350million from his ventures this calendar year.

Mayweather claims that he made $300million from his fight with Conor McGregor in 2017 but insists he can now make more.

A second fight with McGregor has been touted, while a clash with UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov could be on the cards too.

"Once I took over my own career, my first fight I made eight figures," Mayweather said.

"I was already making $7million, $8million, $8 1/2million. But as soon as I became my own promoter and my own boss, I made eight figures instantly.

"From eight figures, we went to making upwards of $32 million per fight. Then I said to myself, ‘It’s not enough.’ So we then went from $32million to $50million.

"Then I said, ‘It’s not enough.’ Then I went from $50million to $100million, and I said, ‘It’s not enough.’

"We went from $100million to $300million, and I said, ‘It’s not enough.’ Now we’re over $300million to $350million, and hopefully, we can make that this year."
